THERE ARE A FEW WAYS YOU CAN HELP YOUR CHILD SUCCEED
1.) You can reach out to me at any time with any questions you may have during the course or afterwards. I can be reached at 833-YAY-KIDS or 833-929-5437 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep this information for your use only. Please do not share it with your student to contact me directly.
2.) After every class the students should practice the tricks they learned that day. Please help them by encouraging them and serving as a volunteer.
3.) Presentation is important… as important or maybe even more important than the technique. When you serve as a volunteer, make sure your child includes the script (they can ad lib if they like) and doesn’t just run through the mechanics of the trick. Every trick they learn (about 15 or so over the course) is significantly stronger with a well-rehearsed story or script. Don’t let them skimp on the story.
In the first class your child will receive a backpack to keep their materials. Your child should bring the backpack with all the materials each day. Every class they will receive materials for one or two TRICKS and one or two FILE FOLDERS (depending on the curriculum of the day).
The tricks provided include detailed instructions on how to perform the magic along with a script. The file folders include additional tricks, but without a detailed script. This gives the students a chance to be creative. Also, in the file folder, is that day’s CHARACTER TRAIT OF A TRUE MAGICIAN (Respectful, Prepared, Enthusiastic, Confident, Humble, Creative, Authentic, and Giving)
