Abstract [en]

The aim of this article was to show how transitions are constructed, and to discuss different ways ofmaking the transition from the preschool class to first grade. The analysis is grounded in ethnographicfieldwork. Temporality is used to understand expectations about how transition should be made. Theresults reveal that some children made their transitions in ways that did not follow the expected timeta-ble. These transitions can be understood as timetable failures, and needed to be made sense of by bothchildren and teachers. These different transitions were an important part of the overall construction oftransition. ©
