This book contains hundreds of accessible teacher-written transition activities. The GIANT Encyclopedia of Transition Activities is the ninth book in Gryphon House's GIANT Encyclopedia series. Teachers will be able to use the transition activities in this book to fill a spare minute, help children calm down, wait for another activity, and much more. Through play, young children learn to communicate, interact, and expand their cognitive thinking horizons. The GIANT Encyclopedia of Transition Activities provides the resources to incorporate play and learning in young children's transition experiences.

This book offers:

  • Over 600 activities in various categories, such as Arrival, Attention Grabbers, Cleanup, Departure, Games, Gross Motor, Music and Movement, and Rainy Day Ideas.
  • Activities in each chapter organized by age appropriateness.
  • Materials lists for each activity, step-by-step instructions, and related books, songs, and poems.
  • Fresh new ideas from teachers who have used these activities in their own classrooms!

About the authors

These books are the result of a nation-wide contest that calls for original ideas from teachers in early childhood. Of the submissions, only the most creative and unique are included in the book. The authors of this book are teachers from across the country, and in some instances, across the world, who submitted their original ideas to Gryphon House's call for activities. Over 80 authors were selected to have their work published in this GIANT Encyclopedia. The activities selected represent the creativity and resourcefulness of teachers from all walks of life and all experience levels. Their contributions are evidence that teachers from all over continue to work hard to create practical transition activities that they can use every day.
