Circle Time

When children come from outdoor free-play, they are usually energetic and excited. They need to be helped to move from such a highly active state to a quieter activity. So, some transition activities are needed to cool them down and get them into the listening and responding mode.
Circle time is an activity during which the educator and the children sit around in a circle and share a conversation, discuss a topic brought up by children or learn a concept. This enables the educator to involve every child actively. The communication is among the members in the circle and not just from educator to children. It also gives every child an opportunity of being an individual while being a part of the larger group.
