Doodle Bugs! Standard of the Week: 1/21/13

This week’s SOTW reminds team members to plan ahead for transitions. Transitions are understandably difficult for many children. While it is impossible to eliminate transitions altogether, we certainly can make them more developmentally appropriate and improve our own expectations, too.

Teachers can and should:

  • Have age-appropriate expectations for children.
  • Examine their schedule and routines to eliminate unnecessary transitions.
  • Plan ahead to reduce or eliminate wait times.
  • Have a ‘bag of tricks’ designed to make transitions smoother.

The SOTW will be posted for parents to see, in the faculty lounge, and placed in each classroom’s mail-slot.
