When students are engaged, excited, and motivated to read, then I think the assembly met the goals of a great educational experience."

Youve never seen a reading show like this.
In Books Are Full of Magic Words, the books themselves become the stars. Each of the programs nine routines either illustrates the plot of an engaging work of childrens literature, or demonstrates key themes of literacy development.
Students will learn:
How Dr. Seuss wrote Green Eggs and Ham with only 50 different words
The value of a library card
The difference between fiction and non-fiction
How reading expands their minds
The plots of books by Gordon Korman, Roald Dahl, and J.K. Rowling
While your students absorb those lessons, theyll all participate in making the magic happen. Theyll fill a bucket with hundreds of half dollars and learn Roald Dahl's silly magical spell to grow a stuffed tortoise. In the end they'll watch one of their classmates float in thin air, three feet off the ground! And theyll laugh along, from start to finish, with age-appropriate humor designed to keep them dialed in.
In other words - students have far too much fun to realize theyre learning.
