9780876591819: The GIANT Encyclopedia of Circle Time and Group Activities for Children 3 to 6: Over 600 Favorite Circle Time Activities Created by Teachers for Teachers (The GIANT Series)

Open to any page in this book and you will find an activity for circle or group time written by an experienced teacher. Filled with over 600 activities covering 48 themes, this book is jam-packed with ideas that were tested by teachers in the classroom.

These are ideas that work, and there are enough to keep children learning and happy for days, weeks and months.

Books and songs related to the activity as well as original songs and poems are included.

About the Author:

Review:

Many of the themes in our current curriculum are included in this excellent book for teachers. We found especially helpful the listing of books related to the themes . . . We also liked the "More to do" sections to extend the themes. The text is not overly wordy which makes me want to read further for ideas. Simple and to the point! -- First Presbyterian Church

Most will agree that the best recipes are found in cookbooks featuring chefs' favorites. Now there is a similar book for parents and early childhood educators. This collection highlights over six hundred ideas that really work--all of them submitted by teachers. Many of the activities are related to children's literature and cover a wide variety of themes. The book has three indexes: an alphabetical list of activities, a list of necessary materials, and a list of the children's books presented in the activities. Consider this resource as a gift for a new teacher or for someone always looking for new proven ideas. -- Reviews from Parent Council

Teachers from all over America shared their experiences and knowledge for the creation of this 510 page compendium . . . .The activities are learning experiences (as well as a lot of fun) and teach basic facts about air and wind, the alphabet, animals, art, beaches and oceans, bears, birds, bodies, clothes, colors, cooking, crafts, dinosaurs, emotions, the environment, the seasons, families, farms, food, friendship, games habitats, health and safety, holidays, insects, movement, other cultures, music, nature, numbers, nursery rhymes, the community, science, self-concepts, sense, shapes, sign language, special days, spiders, starting school, storytelling, transportation, the weather, the zoo, and much, much more. The materials needed for each activity are listed, and easy-to-follow instructions guarantee a successful implementation of the game, exercise, or activity for both the students and the teacher! This is also a highly recommenced resource for homeschooling and for parents and care givers to use for summertime and rainy day activities as well. -- Wisconsin Bookwatch

Teachers from all over America shared their experiences and knowledge for the creation of this 510 page compendium of over 600 activities for successful and enjoyable circle and group times for preschool through kindergarten students.

The Circle Time Tips are very helpful. The numerous topics cover almost every theme a teacher might want to cover in a circle time. The accompanying fingerplays and songs are appropriate for all ages. The unique Index of Children's books helps these ideas fit into many lesson plans. The index of materials helps teachers choose economical ideas and activities and also finds a use for recycled items. --St. Luke's Children's Center
