1,2,3,4...a Great Tranisiton that's for sure!

I love using songs and chants for transitions and I can make a rhyme out of just about anything but I struggled with dismissing my rows from the floor.  Sure I could send the students back by colors or numbers but I needed more pizazz! 
Then I came up with The Row Rap!
Now when we are in our 4 rows on the carpet I start dismissal with this simple rhyme!
Another transition that I use is the opposite of this.  When the students come to the floor I use a simple Body Check.  It is my way of making sure that we are in a good learning position before I begin teaching.
If you are interested in any of these transitions...just let me know and I will send you a copy!
