We have been working on teaching respectful behavior at circle time as a review from the beginning of the year. With these dark, winter days the preschool students have been a tad bit wound up being inside so much. If you could take some time to review these simple steps prior to coming to school I think it will help me reinforce the respectful behavior at circle time.

The following is exactly what we say as the preschool students come to circle after cleaning up:

"At circle where do our feet belong? either in front of us or crisscross apple sauce

At circle where do your hands belong? To ourselves in our laps

At circle what should our ears be doing?  Listening

At circle where should our eyes be? Looking at  the teacher

At circle what should our mouths be doing? They should be zipped closed until we are called on to talk.

At circle do we touch other with our hands, feet or any other part of our bodies? No

At circle do we talk to our friends? No"

This simple review is very helpful for us as we sit down at circle time. I hope by your reviewing the expectations at home that those expectations will be remembered.

Thank you, Robyn
