The workshops are designed to promote reading and unlock the imagination, a key to the reading process. Once a student outgrows picture books, they need to be able to make pictures in their minds to comprehend what they are reading. We use discussion, dramatic play, and imagery to help students tap into the precious resource of their own imaginations.
Dr. Seuss’ zany story-in-verse illustrates the
absurdity of prejudice and discrimination. Role
playing by the students brings the message home.
Our performance uses a special interactive readers theatre style where children participate by role-playing and creating sound effects.Children listen to our stories with their hearts, howl from their guts and participate creatively with their hands and minds. Perfect for school assemblies and libraries! The focus of the Magic Carpet Performance and Workshop is to encourage children to use their imaginations so they will become better readers. The Magic Carpet Performance is fast-paced with lots of humor and audience participation and includes these favorites which inspire positive messages:
