Abstract [en]

When children make a transition to a new arena - a new school form or a new school house - they need not only adapt and adjust to the new context. The transition also involves a separation from the old. By this, a transition becomes a two-way window; a simultaneous process of adjustment and separation. This simultaneous process involves implications for practice. All teachers have a responsibility in enabling the transition process for the children, by helping them not only to adjust to the new but also to disengage from the old context. How can priming events in transition work in both directions? How can teachers be active in children’s disengagement and separation processes? These are questions this chapter address. The chapter has a practical focus and is building on children’s voices and narratives about the transition from preschool to school in Sweden. Special focus is put on children's separation processes since this is an area that seldom is in focus when discussing about or working with children’s transition.
