Bumping up their study of soft consonants to early January as a way to rev up second semester energy, Whitehurst Grade 1 teachers Karen Stephens and Jill Bobbitt invited students to come one, come all to a celebratory circus.
Students wore special circus-themed character costumes of their choosing and performed for their classmates under (near) a special classroom big top. The three-ring circus included a lion who jumped through flames, acrobats, hula-hoopers, the strongest man in the world and feats of magic.
Stephens’ class staged their high-flying fun on January 8 while Bobbitt’s students stepped right up on January 11. For photos from January 11, visit our online gallery here.
