Circle Time is a concept we had lost sight of as the boys got older. I am so grateful that we were able to bring it back with a little help from this book.
Kendra Fletcher gives wonderful suggestions for what to include in Circle Time and has lists of resources to help make this time together the best part of the day.
I can see as the boys get older and need different teaching styles to succeed the tendency to leave CircleTime, and honesty we did let it go by the wayside for too long. Coming together as a family to look at the day and give it all back to God is a huge part of making our days successful.
Above is a glimpse at what we include in our circle time. The prayer on the left by Mary Baker Eddy, is new to the boys but will hopefully stay with them . The script on the right is just some ideas of things we talk about along with a modified scripture verse that I use to help focus our thoughts together toward God. I also try to include a game that is simple yet educational, our current favorite is Boogle Dice (using Boogle jr. dice to find words)
