Product Description
I know that you can stay in the target language and manage classroom behavior better when you take charge of your transitions. This starter kit has the 21 transitions that I use every week, day in and day out. Insert them into your daily tech guide, and watch the magic!

Note: Videos were updated with minor corrections as of July 29, 2017.
Videos with male teacher now available as of December 2017 - Click here for male version.

Please note the slide with ratings. When I first uploaded these videos, TpT did not allow such large bandwidth to be uploaded. So I would send the videos separately. Now you can download such a large file! These ratings are from when we couldn't.

Please read the pre-view that contains all of the lyrics to help you decide if you want to use these videos. They were vetted by several French teachers including a recently arrived Parisian French Teacher - but make sure you are comfortable with the lyrics, as I don't teach French.

Here is your 5 step plan for dominating transitions and taking charge of classroom behavior and reaching the 90% target language goal – even in Spanish One.
1. Use a remote presentation device.
2. Make a list of today’s class activities.
3. Make a slide for each activity.
4. Lead into activity with French Transition Video.
5. Fall in love with your job again.

Transition videos with music and voiceovers defy the conventional wisdom of comprehensible input for extended stretches before output. For some reason, music short circuits and surpasses this traditional wisdom and research! Students start saying and singing the words in these videos in the appropriate context! Why? Because I took all the expressions my students need in my class and after hearing the music, the words just fall out of their mouths! You can visit my blog for more about this.
