I was going to begin this post by saying something like, “Who doesn’t love the circus? Or who doesn’t love clowns!” But I happen to be one of those people who really do not like the circus nor do I have a fondness for clowns. I am, however, knee deep in a circus unit with my first graders and wanted to share a few things we have done with you.

Clown Glyph

Now glyphs- they are fun! I love glyphs and really enjoy creating them and students always love doing them. Last year, BMTM shared a Witch Hat Glyph that I did with my students.  Today the theme is clowns.

Completing the Clown Glyph

Give each student a white circle cut from construction paper. The circle should be about the size of a paper plate.

Give each student a copy of the face features template.

Have students color and cut the features according to the given prompts. For example, color the nose red if you are a boy and pink if you are a girl.  Add red cheeks if you like popcorn, leave the cheeks off if you do not like popcorn. The remaining prompts are available with the templates.

After all students have completed their clown glyph, hang them on a wall or board and ask them questions about the clowns. For example. how many boy clowns are there? How many girls? How many girls like popcorn? How many boys do not like popcorn? The questions can be simple or get more complex when you add in more criteria.
