Growing up, Circle Time - which we lovingly referred to as Together Time, a term I now use with my own spark plugs - was my favorite part of our school day, and now that I'm teaching my own little ones, it is once again the part of the day to which I look most forward. Home schooling can be overwhelming, especially for someone who has not grown up with it. "Circle Time" takes the guess work out of planning and organizing your daily teaching by giving small, tangible steps, providing helpful lists, and offering sensible suggestions. I especially loved the recommendations from moms who are currently implementing the recommendations from the book. It is comforting to hear how Circle Time is working in real families of various sizes and needs.
I would reiterate the fact that CIrcle Time can and should be individual and tailored to meet the needs of your own specific family and circumstances. As I already mentioned, we don't even call ours 'circle time,' and since our family does not often include writing during our Together Time, we have the leisure of meeting together on the couch, on the floor, at the table, or even in the car when necessary.
I would recommend this book to those who feel that their school day is not going well, who desire improvement in their workflow, or who simply want fresh ideas to implement. Those who already have a knack for planning, are accomplishing well everything they hope to during the day, or who are veteran educators may not find it as helpful as those who have more recently begun their home school journey. However, I think nearly everyone will find it motivating and encouraging, just as I did.
