Student Assembly - "I CAN DO IT!"Students will be entertained by Buford Popadopolis and the counselors of "Camp CanDo"! They will help cheer Buford on as he makes his way from one camp activity to the next; struggling each step of the way until he finally sees that his attitude is what is holding him back. Students will witness how believing in themselves and having an "I CAN DO IT" attitude can help them succeed in life.
"Camp CanDo" is filled with a lot of laughter and positive attitude building. Students will love Buford and the counselors. The skit is loaded with fun, songs, and attitude adjusters! Invite Buford to help your students believe they "CAN DO IT"! (Grades: 2-5)
Keynote AddressLaughter, songs, skits, and audience participation will be our venue to drive home the concepts of brain research and differentiation. From beginning with the audience singing and dancing to the rewritten version of "I'm a Believer" until the closing when they are again on their feet singing and dancing, the audience will learn about, and be involved in, activities that will reach both sides of their students' brains, show how to use differentiation and why it's important, and help students to gain a love for learning.
Many characters will, from time to time, make an appearance on stage: Noun Nerd and Adjective Ace, The Grammar Guru, Julia "No Child Left Behind", Mathnut the Magician, The Denominator, as well as an entourage of many others. Even David Learningman will appear to spout his top 10 list. The audience will dance to the division Electric Slide, and unsuspecting volunteers will be brought up to help explain why differentiation is needed for our students. The audience will not just learn about brain research; they will practice it!
As our jobs become more and more demanding, and we need to take on the roles of more and more people, we need to be reminded of the reasons we became teachers in the first place. We need to approach teaching with an "I CAN DO IT!" attitude, and we need to remember that we are the ones who touch lives every single day. We can create a believer with a positive smile, a caring word, or a gentle touch. We have the power to "Get up and make it happen!" We just need the encouragement, knowledge, and motivation to do it! So, as Henry Ford said, "Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right!" and we can!
