Send in the Clowns - Sarasota virtual vacation

Although I am away on vacation, you are with me in spirit. Follow along with my daily itinerary and snag the deal of the day that relates to it.

As for the deal of the day:


While I'm away I'm "rerunning" some of my former posts that relate to the beach. Throughout the month of June, I ran aClassroom Theme Seriesand featured a different popular classroom themeeach day. Themes are a great way to tie everything in your classroom just have to be careful not to let them clutter your classroom :)

Today we're enjoying some time in the Sarasota area. And it just so happens to be home to the Ringling Brothers museum. Which makes for a wonderful opportunity to replay some circus/carnival ideas. What a fun theme this would be. You can check out my Carnival / Circus theme pack here.

I would have thought these would have been easy themes to compile, but alas there wasn't much out there. If you have (or no of) any great circus/carnival theme ideas or pictures let me know and I'll add them here.
