For us Circle Time consists of:
a.) Morning Prayer and Bible Study (with coloring page)
b.) Review of the Daily Schedule Chart
c.) Calendar/Weather work
d.) Music Time (sometimes bilingual songs)
I recently made my own set of 47 Schedule Cards. Prior to that I used a mix of cards from ABC Teach, and The Mailbox. I insert the cards into a pocket chart the night before and we review them during our morning circle time. Throughout the day the children remove the cards.
Sometimes I ask one of the children to sequence the cards of what we did that day. Other times they look at the cards to jog their memory about what their favorite part of the day was. The cards are a popular part of our day as they help them know what to expect. I think all children do well with routine. We have always worked hard to maintain a regular routine. It makes for a calm mommy and happy children.
