Day 27: Executing the Morning Circle with the Child with Special Needs

Day 27- Executing the Morning CircleThis is a post out of the “31 Days of Morning Circles for the Child with Special Needs”.  You can find the main page for this series here.

When you have to keep a close eye on your child, clean-up after breakfast and also prepare for the morning circle, the task can be quite daunting. You might be wondering how to keep all of the moving parts well oiled.

It’s quite simple.

I set-up the morning circle materials on the dining room table while my son digests his breakfast (i.e.: he watches educational TV). Our morning circle gathering is just beside this table. Since the opening and closing activities are the same daily, I store those together in an easy-to-reach spot. The only thing that changes, and that you need to prepare for, is the main activity.

I lay out the materials we need in the morning circle in the order that we use them. This way, I just reach up from our spot and carry on without missing a beat.
