The program yesterday on the book Fridle...was exciting to write and share.
The exciting part was that it was developed in 4 days after reading the book.
150 kids and there teachers were great. Along with vent and puppet bits, I became the 5th grade teacher (Mrs. Granger) with the help of a grey wig.

Feedback from the teachers was very positive. I know most (including myself) work a long time to develop new material...my work on a weekly comedy radion show...helps me develop material with little time for rewrites..(yes most of us are re-writers..not just writers)

Tuesday Nigel and the Nearly Normal puppets will share about the solar system...

Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket...

Is Pluto sad because it is not a planet...
Must be "ruff" said Nigel...
Not Pluto the dog.
I was just being goofey said Nigel...

Was it a one time program, or will you present it in other schools ? How about the solar system show ? Is it one you keep in rotation, or just something you whipped up for a one time event ? I ask because I do a lot of theme shows as well. Curious to see how often you come up with one time themes...

This was the second of two one time shows.
The show went very well.

Nigel let me know that falling "stars" are not really stars but meteorites.
We sang a lot of parody songs...like Potatoe Moon(to the tune of Blue Moon)
We stopped during the song to explain that Mar's moon is not round..(the gravity of the situation..or lack of enough gravity)...Pass the ketchup...

Since this was a summer school. Many of the teachers present were from other schools...Don't you love it when teachers approach You!

The LONG answer is that some are one time things...but this one will be further developed and used again.

Didn't use it but had rehearsed using d'lites during the Catch a falling star bit...

We opened with a harmonica instrumental..(while the kids were coming in..

Twinkle Twinkle little star. By the time the kids were all seated they were singing silently the song...

Nigel sang Twinkle Twinkle little star I know just what your are
Can you guess, how I know..my science teacher told me so.

Regarding Saturn..I truly did not know that other planets had rings..(4 total I think...) I didn't even know they were engaged....

1 down..and 2 more to go today....

Off to lunch....

to Infinity..(or Chinese Buffet...) and beyond...

Harris,

That sounds great. I'd buy a ticket to see it. Being an educator with stories & stuff, I like how you think.

Well done,
Beano

Beano and Mark...

Thanks for the kind words...Regarding how I think..sometimes my wife stops me in conversation and asked me how I moved from one topic to another...I slow down and explain the thought process...she usually gets it ..but sometimes gives me "that look". She is wonderful (and the smart one in the family with a masters in history) and helps "ground" me.
