September’s theme in Kindergarten was ”Circus.” A circus theme was a great way to introduce colors and shapes. Kindergartners had fun making tents, clowns, circus animals and reading stories about the circus. They also played circus BINGO.
One PE class, Mr. Crabtree taught the children how to juggle. Yesterday, the children put on their own circus with tricks, “animal” acts, and a special clown treat.
Their last circus event was to read the story, Twenty-One Elephants and Still Standing, about the Brooklyn Bridge and Phineas T. Barnum of Barnum and Bailey Circus. This book is the introduction to bridge building which they will be studying in October.
