Preschool circle time is an important part of our curriculum. We plan fun learning activities that strengthen language skills while learning many concepts. It’s important to know when circle time is best during your day, for how long, and what types of activities work well with this age group.

Planning for Circle Time:

 

  • Think about when your circle time would be best, and for how long.

 

  • Have props ready to go. (Pre-Kinders)

Circle Time Activities:

  • Practice name recognition with The Name Game (Teach Preschool)

 

  • Hand each child a number and go around the circle, asking what number it is. The cards are easy to make, as I show here.

 

  • Pass around a letter bag and have the children remove a letter and identify it. (Dr. Jean and Friends)

 

 

  • Circle time is perfect for playing games. (Earlychildhood NEWS)

    • Thank you so much for calling my attention to this, Dani! When I migrated from blogger to wordpress, some of my links got messed up. I have fixed it and will go through the rest of the post.
