Teaching Artist: Laughing Matters

In this energetic, interactive performance, mime, juggling and magic make literacy come alive! Letters get animated as Jay mimes the entire alphabet from A (arrow) to Z (zipper). A clever magic trick is used to introduce rhyming words, synonyms, antonyms and homophones. The show concludes with improvised stories based on nouns, verbs, and adjectives suggested by the students. Also available for after school.
