Goal

To have a place for every student to sit during whole group instruction at “Circle Time” in 1st grade classrooms and 1st grade quad.  

 

What will be done with my students

By using circle time to create a community where everyone feels they belong, including children experiencing special circumstances, teachers educate children in the best sense of the word and lead them towards participation in a world where they are valued as individuals. 

 

Benefits to my students

Since the opportunities for reading, discussion, and play in circle time are endless, so too is the opportunity for children to learn and grow. How to behave appropriately in a group is a learned skill, which prepares young children for other group activities, and for many experiences in adult life. Everything from social skills to language to empathy can be gained with practice in circle time.
For example, when children:
•are allowed to express feelings and ideas to a group without judgment, they gain confidence.
•practice taking turns listening and speaking during circle time, they learn valuable skills in positive communication.
•are introduced to a wide variety of concepts, people, and ideas in circle time, they learn acceptance.
•The students will have a sense of personal space. It made all the difference.
