Reading is Magic! Show
Well actually it isn’t magic, it is a skill very much like juggling. Because reading is a skill you can get better at it. This fun filled show is full of parallels between juggling and reading like: Practice is important, challenging yourself can be fun, and teachers can help you surprise yourself! Other messages include reading can let you learn about anything your interested in knowing about or doing and it’s fun to surprise yourself and others!
I Can’t Yet! Show
I Can’t YET! is about turning failure into success. This show is a slapstick look at learning. Mistakes are not permanent! It is an audience participation show that teaches goal setting, learning step by step, and challenging yourself to do amazing things. Ted uses the skills of manipulation and balancing to bring these concepts to life. I Can’t Yet has been performed at the Strong Children’s Museum, Trinity Montessori in East Rochester, NY, and a number of other schools in the Rochester, NY area.
