This is a new activity we added to our morning circle today. To begin our day, we look at who is with us, and who is absent. The children enjoy this process of calling out eachothers names, as well as the recognition that comes with having ones own name called out. To add to this we now use pictures of each child, which are placed on our door when their name is called. The enjoy returning to this during the day, pointing out their picture to one another.
