Read it Right Now!


 Mime, magic, and improvisation are used to explore the nuts and bolts of reading. Mime illusions feature the letters A-Z. Leslie and Jay Cady combine letters to make words in a clever box manipulation routine. See a magic trick involving rhymes, synonyms, antonyms, and homophones as well as improvised stories based on nouns, verbs, and adjectives suggested by the students.
