Rethinking Circle Time: Seasonal Movement Circles
“Circle Time is where they learn the least.” A bold statement that may or may not feel true to you. This training will look at alternatives to calendar time, traditional circles and read alouds. It will dive into the world of engaging the imagination through puppet plays and developing fine and gross motor skills through a seasonal movement circle. We will also examine age appropriate expectations and learning outcomes.
