Circus Themed Lesson Ideas and Freebies

I have changed the way I set up my weekly lesson plans about 6 times already this school year. My latest kick is teaching to themes. The last few weeks I have been trying to stick to one theme for reading, math, cooking, science, writing, etc. throughout the whole week.

This week, our theme is the circus. We decorated our room a little bit, did a ton of fun lessons and activities, and even held a mini-circus in our classroom on Friday!
