Indoor and Outdoor Play and Activities

We invited teachers from all over the country to share their experience and knowledge for the creation of this giant resource. Open to any page in this book and you will find an activity for circle or group time written by an experienced teacher--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. Many activities include suggestions for extending the circle time or group activity into other areas of the curriculum such as math, science, snack, language, or field trips. Books and songs related to the activity as well as original songs and poems are included.
"Consider this resource as a gift for a new teacher or for someone always looking for new proven ideas."--Reviews from Parent Council
"Teachers will find this an important reference as it charts practical circle time activities which have been tried and tested in the classroom: from dinosaur bone hunt to holiday celebrations, this is an excellent collection."--"Children's Bookwatch"
." . . open this book anywhere and find something fun to do. . . . Even teachers with years of experience should find great new suggestions here, while beginners will find it invaluable."--"Notes from the Window Sill"
