Circle games and linking printable resources to tackle behaviour and set clear classroom rules

Everything has a reason

You will need

A collection of everyday ‘useful’ objects (eg ruler, key, spoon, pencil etc).

What to do

Place your objects in the centre of the circle. Get a volunteer to pick one and then describe how the object is useful. For example: ‘A key helps us to open a locked door.’ Let other children take turns picking an object.
