Transitions help!!

Anyone have advice on transitions? I can get my kids to carpet and then to centers, but finishing a whole group activity and coming back to carpet or finishing centers and coming back to carpet is not going well- they are loud and wiggly and it is taking too long to get settled...I have tried songs and one table at a time and a chime- any help would be great!

I swear by having a clean up song. Any song, it doesn't really matter, but I turn it on and that is their cue to clean up and come to the rug. They have the duration of the song to be done. I love not having to say a word. I have a whole group incentive system so the peer pressure to be done and on the rug in time is fantastic!

Change the song set so there is an active part where they are cleaning up, like Sbkangas5 said, and then a slow part as they come to the carpet. Something with a relaxation sequence (if you can find/make it) would be great - "Sit down and close your eyes, breathe deeply, wiggle your fingers to relax them, place them in your lap..."
