20 May Play music for transitions.
Transitions can be very challenging for your precious students or clients. I encourage you to find a song for every transition. You can sing a song, play a song, or even whistle a song. You may have noticed that the majority of your students respond very well to music. Use this to your advantage. In between activities, when it is time to clean up, when an activity begins, and when a game ends, sing a song. Music lights up a room, and most probably you and your students, too.
