Settling and transition activities for Infantil Back to list

Practical activities to help make smooth transitions in the Infants class.

We all know that effective class management is an essential first step toward creating a positive, supportive climate for learning. But how do we do it? We’ve been talking to different teachers about the techniques they use in their classes.

Watch Alistair Jones in this first clip in our how-to series on class management in the Infants class. Alistair refers to the transition from one activity to another as one of the most difficult moments in any young learners’ classroom and, if you teach Infants, you’ll know just what he means! Alistair shows you how to use finger play activities, chants and actions songs to help make transitions more effective, settling all of the children so that you’ve got their attention.
