Creative Circle Time Lessons for the Early Years
- Yvonne Weatherhead - MBE
Early Childhood Social Skills | English | Music/Fine Arts/Drama
This creative book uses music, song, poetry and a host of practical ideas to engage children in Circle Time Activities. The publication stems from Yvonne's own work in schools where 26 alphabetical themes have been centralised around a lovable bear character.
There are four strands in the book which are linked to the Social Skills curriculum.
- Self esteem
- Spiritual and Moral Development
These strands are developed through the 26 themes from 'Adorable' bear to 'Zig Zag' bear with a weekly introduction of a new rhythm to accompany the poem. For each theme there are comprehensive notes for teachers with lots of ideas on the content of each theme.
The DVD- ROM contains all 26 poems and songs, recited or sung by the children. The DVD-Rom also includes printable posters and positive thought sheets.
As an experienced teacher Yvonne offers not only a comprehensive practical resource that all teachers will find useful and time saving, but she also provides links to Citizenship, planning sheets for PSHE, lesson objectives and full lesson notes, providing all the support busy teachers need.
A very exciting practical resource, easy to use and built on a very solid foundation of many years of expertise and practice.
