101 Learning and Transition Activities is a unique resource that includes a plethora of activities for teachers and families to share with children. This wonderful resource first defines what a transition activity is, and then introduces the reader to the Seven Elements of Good Transition Activities: preparation, variety, repetition, enthusiasm, interaction, timing, and age appropriateness. Those seven elements are then applied in categories, which provide fun and interesting ideas that will not only transition children, but also keep them engaged and involved. The seven categories include Character Sketch/Role Play; Imagination; Large and Small Motor; Recognition and Memory; Quieting Down/Crowd Control; and Repetition. Each activity presents the objective, approximate duration, appropriate ages, and required materials. The authors concisely walk caregivers through the steps of the activity and then provide Practical Tips on such topics as the acquisition of supplies, ways to shorten or lengthen an activity, and safety guidelines to follow with children. Each page includes ample space for readers to add their own activity or to make notes for future activities. This must-have resource promotes the use of children's imagination while directly incorporating their input into each activity.
