Magical Reading Assembly
Looking to excite your students about reading in a fun way? Our Magical Reading Assembly shows students–in a memorable, engaging manner–how much fun reading is! Your problem will become: Do we have enough books in the library to handle everyone who wants to check them out!
We excite students about reading through stories and content reinforced by magic, comedy, lots of audience participation and interaction, and puppets. A study guide to extend the learning into the classroom and promotional posters are also part of the program.
