Closing Circles: Book from Responsive Classroom

This book contains "50 activities for ending the day in a positive way." With this simple strategy, teachers claim to feel "calmer and more energized" as they say goodbye properly to each student and vice versa.


"A closing circle is a strategy for bringing a peaceful end to the school day...on a positive note."


Examples of closing circle activities include:

-Singing a song together

-Thinking about an accomplishment

-Setting a personal goal

-Playing a game

-Sending a friendly goodbye around the circle


This book is FULL of great ideas to keep closing circles fresh, like saying goodbye in different languages, playing 1-2-3-POP, playing did you know, just like me, make a wish, and song ideas.
