A circle time activity which is fab for a display too!
During circle time, choose a child’s name out of a ‘gold box’ and let that person be the week’s ‘special person’. Before s/he can be a special person, we all must think about why we like them.
The special person holds a special teddy and sits on a special beanbag. We go around the circle, and each child has to say, “I like _____ because ___.”
Record each thought on a flower, putting the child’s name in the leaf and the other children’s ideas in about six petals. Display in a garden on the wall.
It looks great when all of your class have a flower in the garden!
