Believing in ourselves and that we can be successful is important, not just for us as individuals but for society as a whole. But how do we get to that point? It starts with us as parents and what goes on in the home. In addition to extending unconditional love to our children, we must model for them how to properly handle normal everyday situations as well as deal with the obstacles that we all will face. This helps instill confidence.

However, we face many challenges from the world that we live in. Just look around at the things that can erode our children’s self-esteem. We’re bombarded with constant messages in the media about how beauty and greed matter more than hard work and integrity. Unfortunately, parents aren’t spending enough quality time with their children and don’t monitoring their activities. As a result, children lack important life skills and more importantly, self-worth. As a society we definitely have our work cut out for us. We can succeed but it’s going to take a concerted effort between the home and the school. Learn about our Yes I Can Magic Program.

Here are some ways to reinforce goal setting with your students after the show:

A Goal Demonstration

  • When your students are back in their classrooms, have them get into a circle along with their teacher. Introduce a beanbag by having the teacher call out someone’s name and toss it to them and ask them how they’re feeling today. Then have that student call out the name of another student, toss it to them and the student who threw the beanbag will ask them how that person feels. This will continue until everyone has had a chance to call out a name, toss the beanbag and express how they feel. Don’t let the students know until the end that you are actually timing how long they took to reach out to every student.
  • Once completed, let the students know the time and ask if they can do it again, but more quickly the second time. Offer it as a challenge so they will say “yes” and repeat.

What is a Goal?

Define what a goal is and what it means. For example, we think we can pass the beanbag to everyone in the classroom in ___ minutes.

Goal Setting Steps

Discuss the steps involved in setting and achieving a goal:

  • Define what you want to accomplish.
  • Determine how you plan to meet the goal.
  • Set up a plan of action.
  • Think about the benefits of reaching the goal.
  • Track and evaluate your progress along the way.

Why are Setting Goals Important?

  • Start a discussion about why setting goals are important and what they can do for them as well as others.
  • Talk about the advantages to goal setting. For example, how can it improve your self-confidence? How does it affect your drive and motivation? Does having a goal want to make you set additional goals?

The children, staff, and parents present were very much entertained with the presentation. Our students were completely engaged and received a great deal of practical information during the show as well. The Big Event Magic Show was excellent and we will definitely recommend it to others.

Our students enjoyed the magic show and were engaged throughout the presentation. The magician was very entertaining and the message of 'Reading' was definitely communicated to our students. The ‘magic show incentive' motivated our students to sell more items! I strongly recommend it as a successful fundraiser!
