Vocabulary in Context
A clown sat in a field beyond the circus tents. He wanted to think of new ways to make children laugh. "Maybe I could show them my collection of bright red clown noses," he said. "Or maybe I should grow a long, curly mustache." He thought about these ideas seriously. Then he said, "No, what I need is a new trick!"
He fastened a strap to his eyeglasses so they would no fall off. He raised his arms overhead and did a cartwheel. It was fun, but it wasn't a great trick. Then another clown walked by. They did cartwheels at the same time, waving their big, funny shoes in the air. "Now this is a funny trick!" said the clown happily.
