***Zoom Circle Time is Currently on Hiatus. With changing schedules in the Novak home related to the COVID-19 phased reopenings, Zoom Circle Time is paused. Feel free to check back for updates!***
You are invited to a special Zoom Circle Time designed just for neurodiverse toddlers and preschoolers. We will meet via Zoom on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:00am-8:20am right from the comfort of your home! Join fellow parents and children to welcome one another, sing songs, learn, share, thrive and stay connected in the midst of social distancing. Each week will follow a theme and will include:
Hello Song: We will welcome one another with a familiar "hello" song.
Detective Time: Listen to Hanna's clues and build inferencing skills as you guess what surprise animal or item Hanna brought to share.
Group Song #1: We'll join together to sing a fun, familiar song related to the weekly theme.
Check the Weather: Everyone can crawl, walk or run to their widows to peek outside and check the weather. We'll share our weather reports with the group.
Sharing Time: Each participant will have an opportunity to share something special they bring related to the weekly theme. It might be an animal, a book, a vehicle...each week is something new!
Group Song #2: We'll join together to sing a second fun, familiar song related to the weekly theme.
Story Time: Hanna will read a story to the group that relates to our weekly theme.
Goodbye Song: Wave goodbye until our next circle time meeting.
Hanna will use her professional Speech-Language Pathology lens to share tips and ideas for parents to support their child's learning, development, emotional-regulation and social communication during this time of social upheaval.
