      I am a big fan of the Dr. Jean CD's to help with transitions, etc. http://drjean.org/html/shoppingPage02.html

      Potentially connecting gestures to the music will help develop a meaning of the words. Teach signs to the words itself.

      Or choose popular songs that indicate a certain behavior. For example, one of my k-2 teachers uses the song "I like to move it,move it" to indicate transition.
