If you think Peter Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” is perhaps a bit too ambitious for a bunch of first graders, then you haven’t met Bryant Elementary’s first grade teacher Son Mi Lim or music teacher Kelly Krohn.

The two worked together on “The Nutcracker” as part of the students’ humanities class.

Lim incorporated themes from The Nutcracker into all aspects of the curriculum, including reading, writing and math.

Two performances at the school on Tuesday were a hit with the audiences.
