Circle time in the Montessori Setting

Cirlce time in the Montessori seting is an important time for children to develop skills in listening, learning new concepts and vocabulary, learning to follow directions, build sense of self and confidence, and learning about being an important part of a community. Some of the many things we do during our circle time includes reading stories, singing songs, playing instruments, and talking about concepts such as weather, time of year, and family activities. The children at the nursery are a a sensitive period for language development, they are open and eager to learn, and so introducing new everyday objects during circle time is a fun way for the children to learn new words.
