Transition Songs for F-2

Music Age 5-12

Support the emotional, social and cognitive development of students through practical songs that teach them to work together while supporting language development and classroom routines.

Transition songs can motivate, focus and help children to engage and participate fully as part of a group.

All songs are accompanied by activity guides, lyrics and backing tracks to assist teachers with calming and motivating students to participate in classroom activities. Ukulele cords are also included for teachers who are eager to incorporate an instrument into the activities.
