Magic equals movement in the classroom

Some of us use sign language to help teach our young language learners.

Some of us use songs to help teach our young language learners.

I don’t think  a whole bunch of us are using magic to help teach our young learners.

Besides, isn’t magic supposed to be what grandpas and uncles are for?

Eh? Magic? Magic!

Meet Bob!

Bob, meet everyone!

Within the space of 45 minutes, Bob’s Magic Show had us counting (shhhh…earplugs), discussing missing zoo animals. and panicking because the snake is on the loose, discovering that Lucy ate all of the carrots).

G is for Gullible, and I was oh so most happily wearing my Gullible Hat.

Magic for young language learners.

It works!

P.S. Want some research-y information on using magic in a classroom?

    • I, too, had a great time on Sunday, and I was so happy to finally meet you! Your Magic Show is *phenomenal*, and I will be pushing people aside to snag a front row seat when you perform for our students! Pushing gently, of course. Will see you soon!
