Transitions from Gan to First GradeQ: How does the school help children transition from gan to 1st grade ?
A: Preparation starts already in gan hova with the ganenet preparing the child: talking about what to expect and so forth. In addition, after school assignments are made, gan children are invited one morning with his/her parents to meet with the assigned school. In addition, it could be noted that some schools have special study areas in Grade 1 which are similar to gan surroundings, albeit adopted to Grade 1 needs. This strategy has been carried out in schools in order to help the transition from gan to 1st grade, as well as to support learning.
Q: How is integration approached for first grade students?
A: Our first grade teachers are specially trained to help each first grade student ease into the transition to becoming a student and a member of his/her new school community.
