Working with children can be a challenge. There may be times within the school day when students need to transition, whether physically or from one task to another. When it is time to transition to a writing lesson after recess, many kids may be upset with the disruption. Of course, most children will be able to make the move back into the classroom and get to their writing, but some children will still struggle with the transition. Practicing this from week to week makes it easier for the majority of kids. When you practice this with your students you are improving their cognitive flexibility.
