In-School Performance (intended for the entire grade level to experience together)

I will provide all the props, materials and sound system for the show.
I need to arrive one hour and a half prior to the show to set up. So I will need access to the space at that time. Also I need one banquet sized table. Also, I need 11 volunteers for this program. I need to see the volunteers prior to the start of the show all together 20 minutes before the show.
I can recognize and sort numbers. I can understand money math, length, addition, subtraction, grouping and comprehend how patterns work. I can start to think about math as accessible and fun.
Mathblast 1 makes the foundations of math fun, informative and memorable. Combining magic, circus arts, eye-catching visuals and audience participation with my unique rhyming text, Marvin keeps his audiences laughing and learning. This show enhances responsibility and self regulation with a fun participation game at the beginning of the show where students are responsible for a certain number. I communicate a story and students with the numbers must move forward when their number is called. From the participants perspective, this is great to enhance their responsibility in the activity and great for students watching to see how the activity is communicated and give their approval when there is success. From 20 years of experience writing, designing and performing my own shows and 30 years of performing in front of children, I have created performances that have been able to bridge the age gap. With constant surprises, excellent visuals, my rhyming text and a knack for knowing what kids like, I am able to keep the attention of younger audiences, keep older audiences interested and teachers smiling.
Loading into and out of a show is always a lot of work. Any volunteers that want to meet me when I arrive to help unload is more than appreciated. Any volunteers that want to help me breakdown and load out is appreciated also.
Grade K: Mathematics: Counting and Cardinality: Know number names and the count sequence: Cluster #2: Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).
Grade K: Mathematics: Measurements and Data: Describe and compare measurable attributes. Cluster # 1: Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.
Grade K: Theatre: Responding: Anchor Standard #7: Perceive and analyze artistic work: A. With prompting and support, express an emotional response to characters in dramatic play or a guided drama experience (e.g., process drama, story drama, creative drama).
Grade 1: Mathematics: Operations and Algebraic Thinking: Add and subtract within 20. Cluster # 5: Relate counting to addition and subtraction (e.g., by counting on 2 to add 2).
Grade 1: Mathematics: Measurement and Data: Measure lengths indirectly and by iterating length units: Cluster #1: Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.
Garde 1: Theatre: Responding: Anchor standard # 7: Perceive and analyze artistic work: A. Recall choices made in a guided drama experience (e.g., process drama, story drama, creative drama).
Grade 2: Mathematics: Measurement and Data: Measure and estimate lengths in standard units: Cluster #1: Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
Grade 2: Mathematics: Measurement and Data: Work with time and money: Cluster #8: Solve word problems involving dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies, using $ and cents symbol appropriately. Example: If you have 2 dimes and 3 pennies, how many cents do you have?
Grade 2: Theatre: Responding: Anchor Standard #7: Perceive and analyze artistic work: A. Recognize when artistic choices are made in a guided drama experience (e.g., process drama, story drama, creative drama).
