As classroom circles have gained popularity the market has been flooded with circle resources.  I have listed many notable ones further down the page and will add to these lists as required.  When I work with schools however more often than not they are working within a tight budget and therefore they inevitably ask for my ‘go to’ resources, the ones I cannot live without.  For this reason I have created the following classroom circle kits for schools based on the resources I use most on a daily basis, enjoy!
