It wasn’t easy, but Sterling Elementary fourth-grader Mia Rosa kept alternating tosses with the three multi-colored scarfs she and her classmates were learning to juggle with Monday.

Surrounded by a sea of around 100 third and fourth graders in the school gym, Bruce Pfeffer, director of Circus of the Kids, waded through the crowd, providing instruction to Rosa and others on how to properly juggle the scarves, an exercise that research shows develops hand-eye coordination and motor skills. It also promotes concentration.
