November

14th World Kindness Day- Power of Words Show $8

May I have a turn when you’re finished please? Please stop, I don’t like that. Thank you, I like it when you share.  I’m sorry, May I help you? It’s really that easy and even more affective when the children hear that significant line: “Use Your Words” from a fun entertainer. This show helps children learn to communicate, by experiencing some common childhood disputes and role-playing,  dressing up and learning songs and actions to encourage them to speak out positively.   The use of simple sign language helps children to remember positive words.
