The Circus: Thematic Common Core Essentials.

A great theme for any time of the year is the Circus! We offer a great thematic unit that covers all areas of the curriculum and is strategically links to important learning standards. It is written specifically for kindergarten, but can be easily used in Pre-K and 1st.

My students love this unit. Especially when our playhouse turns into clown college!

To get you started, you might enjoy this free song poster. This poster is a sampling of songs that are included in the unit called The Circus. It is an original song sang to the tune of "Baby Bumbleebee." It is a lot of fun!

Every unit includes its own cross-curricular planing guide.
