Letters, Numbers, Shapes, and Colors

Leslie and Jay Cady use mime and juggling to help little nippers learn basic concepts they need for kindergarten. Students are led through a mime alphabet acting out mime illusions from A to Z. Jay and Leslie juggle props of different shapes and colors and challenge the students to count them, recognize repeating patterns, and complete sets in accordance with math standards set by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics for pre-kindergarten through first grade.
