Abstract

Transition into a new elementary school is difficult and frightening for children in Kindergarten. This article focuses on the impact peers, parents, teachers and counselors have when helping support the transition into a new school setting. Environmental, social, physical and emotional issues all play a key role in the transition process. Interventions are implemented to a new Kindergarten Student at a Brockport Elementary School to determine if they affect the school adjustment and forming of friendships for that five year old child. Recommendations for counselor practice are included.
