Giddy-Up and Get Healthy

Dino O'Dell (Master Teaching Artist) (Lighton Prize) [ view artist bio ]

Join award-winning musician and master storyteller Dino O'Dell for a dose of healthy fun. Dino introduces us to a cowboy, a space alien, and five singing carrots and teaches nutrition, healthy play, the "crash" of eating junk food, and the importance of a good bedtime routine. This performance engages students through finger-plays, fill-in-the-blank lyric writing, counting songs, and movement. As Cowboy Joe would say, "On your mark... get set... get healthy!" This is an especially effective performance when paired with the workshop Healthy Choices Count! by Jay & Leslie's Laughing Matters.
