## Reflection: Transitions Gobblers on the Gate - Section 2: Mini Lesson

The area from my carpet to the white board is a very short distance. My class was taking way too long to get to the white board quickly and quietly! To eliminate the waste of time during this transition, we now always count to five together. By the time we leave the carpet and are seated at the white board, we should be at 5. The class thinks of it as a game, trying to see whoever is not seated and ready by 5. This has made the transition time much more efficient.

Transitions: Moving Quickly
