6 Fun and Simple Hallway Transitions {Printable}

Fun and simple ideas for classroom management are often found from the best resource available to teachers: other teachers! I’ve asked my facebook fans to share their hallway transitions to help make your classroom management even easier. Here are their top hallway procedure transitions and ideas.

You’re gonna love these ideas. I’m sure you’ll find that these have been passed on from teacher to teacher and from friend to friend, but you might find something new to try! I’m going to include a printable and let you know who shared these with us where applicable.

Eyes, Feet Hands Poster

This first one was shared by Joanne. It says, “Eyes on the door, feet on the floor, hands behind my back and say no more.” It’s a quick way to remind students of their hallway procedures. Click on the words beneath each poster to download the one(s) you like.

Magic Finger Poster

This cute saying works when you like to have students place their finger over their lips when walking in the hallway. It was shared by Lia and it says, “ Magic finger in the air magic finger everywhere magic finger on your hips magic finger on your lips.” What a cute way of making hallway procedures have a little magic in store!

Ninja Feet Poster

Now this one is already a favorite of mine, thanks to Staci! She shared how she says, “We put on our sneaky ninja feet.” Since I wanted to make it ready to share with you in the form of a free printable, I added a few words to turn it into a rhyming chant. Can’t you see boys {in addition to girls of course} just thinking this one is the best?

Spanish Hallway Procedures

I’m not one to speak Spanish in the classroom, but this one may come in handy for many of you. It says, ”Eyes to the front, hands behind [your back], one follows the other, and no more talking!” This was shared by Michelle and she says it rhymes in Spanish, and of course there are hand motions!

“Our general hallway rule is: if it doesn’t have your name on in, you CANNOT touch it! This goes for walls, doors, posts, fire extinguishers, and other students’ work. I try to walk by OUR work often so they can touch their own.”

Now get this additional cute idea that she uses to help kinders learn how to control their fingers – “Our general hallway rule is: if it doesn’t have your name on in, you CANNOT touch it! This goes for walls, doors, posts, fire extinguishers, and other students’ work. I try to walk by OUR work often so they can touch their own.”

Ready for the Hallway Poster

This cute poem was handed to Manda from fellow teachers. It says, “My hands are by my side. I’m standing straight and tall. My eyes are looking towards the front. I’m ready for the hall. Shh!” She says that after the “Shhh!” that students keep their candle sticks (fingers) up and are ready for the hallway.

Bubble Hallway Poster

This short and sweet reminder came from Catrina. It says, “Cross your arms and swallow your bubble! That’s how we stay out of trouble!” Reminding students to think of swallowing a bubble reminds them of appropriate hallways voice levels. {Love it}

So, there you have the first round of fun and simple hallway transitions shared by KindergartenWorks readers! I {{love}} my fans for being so ready to share their great tips with me and with others. After all, that’s what we do here – we share from our classroom to yours.
