You pick the story and read it to your audience.

We have several animals who have appeared or regularly appear in Dora the Explorer stories, for example. We have the tortoise and the hare and many others. If you are interested, please contact me for a complete list of available animals.

Science
Scientist and award-winning author Steve The Dirtmeister Tomecek takes a slightly serious look at the science behind many of the sports that kids love to play. The program features over a dozen interactive demonstrations which are safe enough for kids to try themselves. We begin with a look at athletes and why reaction time and hand-eye coordination is so important. We then explore the roles played by inertia, leverage, angular momentum, friction and gravity in everything from bowling and basketball to soccer and baseball!

Schotter, Roni You Too Can Be A Writer Literature- Creative Writing,
Literature- Authors,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists
Award-winning author of 28 books, including NOTHING EVER HAPPENS ON 90TH STREET, used by many teachers to model writing, THE BOY WHO LOVED WORDS, winner of the 2006 Parents' Choice Award, and MAMA, I'LL GIVE YOU THE WORLD, winner of Oppenheim Platinum Award. I speak to children as fellow writers and share my passion for the power and pleasure of words and story. I urge children to turn their ideas, events and feelings into stories by observing carefully, using their imagination, and asking, what if? I show my messy notebooks and drafts to emphasize the value and pleasure of rewriting. With fun exercises and writing tips based on my many books, I aim to convince children that writing--whether fiction or nonfiction--is both rewarding and easy.

Frizzi & Lazzi (which means “sparkling theatre”) is a music and theatre company of professional actors, singers and musicians dedicated to reviving the musical and theatrical entertainments performed by Italian-American immigrants at the turn of the last century. The body of work from which productions are adapted includes original plays, songs and skits by Italian-American writers and composers, as well as traditional theatre and music from the Italian repertory, all of which were performed on the stages of Little Italies around the United States. Our actors and performers dress in period costumes, and speak and sing in both English and Italian during performances to make the material accessible to everyone, and still retain the flavor of the original Italian. Our musical and theatrical material is ideal for your social and educational organizations and makes Italian cultural events and celebrations a success! Frizzi & Lazzi can also include variety type entertainments: such as, jugglers, acrobats, magicians, folk dancers, puppeteers, etc. The company also conducts workshops and provides educational lectures with video or audio presentations on various aspects of Italian and Italian-American culture: Carnevale - Masks - Italian-American Theatre - Italian Festivals - Pulcinella.

Music,
Performing Arts- Other
This program offers a three step approach for audience members to seek out literature that interests them as a catalyst to creating intrinsic motivation to read. The steps are: 1. Evaluate what things you are interested in as a person. 2. Research what resources are available to help you find literature that covers those interests. 3. Seek out the people that can help you acquire that material. (Librarians, parents, teachers, friends, etc.) This message is reinforced with award-winning original children's music and contemporary popular music.

All of my reading programs are designed to capture and keep the attention of students in grades K-6th. My Read To Succeed program use a variety of performing arts such as: magic tricks, storytelling, age appropriate humor, audience interaction and music to captivate students as they learn. A funny, interactive program that encourages kids to spend more time reading books. It also covers the importance of taking care of library books in a very unique way. There are 8 different popular children books that are used and talked about all throughout my reading program. I focus and show the kids how important reading everyday is so very important and the library as well. I use story-telling in a very magical way and show your students how books have lots of gold on the inside as long as they check them out and read them! My goal with school programs is to get your students excited about the learning process and to help reinforce what is already being taught at school.
