Balloons Over Broadway: Happy Thanksgiving

The Leaping Lemurs read Balloons Over Broadway, the story of Tony Sarg who first invented the “upside-down puppets” that have become the trademark of the Macy’s Day Parade! Using Tony as inspiration we then made our own animal puppets using mixed-media illustrations.

A video below of our official Leaping Lemurs’ Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Spooky Halloween Dance

The Leaping Lemurs performed a belated Spooky Halloween Dance for Ms. Juttla and I today! Your children have INCREDIBLE dance moves and we will be bringing them out during our Diwali celebration tomorrow morning!



When life gives you apples… bring them to class for all to share!  Thank you, Luca and Jackson P, for the delicious apples.

Here’s a poem for all you apple pickers out there:

Red Apple
By Anonymous


A little red apple

Hung high in a tree

I looked up at it

And it looked down at me

“Come down, please,” I called

And what do you suppose

That little red apple

Dropped right on my nose!
