In the schools where I have worked, we've always had step up day. On this day, each grade level would visit the next grade level and learn about that grade. The teachers usually made it fun to get the kids excited about the transition. For fifth graders, they were able to go to the gym and play games while step up day was occurring. I think it would be fun for classes to do a transition flipbook when they come back to their classrooms after Step Up Day.
So, what do you do to help kids transition within the school? If you're interested in transition to middle school, you can see everything I do here. There's even a middle school freebie for you to download!
