NED Assembly

During our last week of school we had an awesome assembly.  The NED Show was one of my very favorite assemblies to watch.  It was really fun, informative and the kids had a blast!

Here's what their website has to say:

The NED Show is a high energy, 45-minute motivational assembly featuring our character NED and lots of active participation for kids. Presented through storytelling, humor, visuals and audience participation, The NED Show utilizes a multi-sensory learning model to motivate…encourage…INSPIRE your students to become champions at school and in life. 
We teach three critical skills that bring out the champion in every kid by sharing the story of NED, whose name is also an acronym.
These three simple principles can make a profound difference in every student, as well as create a strong impact on the culture of your entire school. By the time the assembly is dismissed, students will know that there is a Champion inside of everyone!
One of our sweet little girlies got chosen to go up and answer some questions.  She was stinkin' cute and hilarious!  

Nothing gets passed her.  :)

He used a yo-yo and magic tricks as a visual lesson for the children.  And let me tell you, they will NOT forget the yo-yos.  The assembly is free, but they set up their fancy yo-yos and other accessories to sell.  The kids at our school bought a surprising amount of yo-yos.  





If any of you are considering some exciting assemblies for your schools, I highly recommend this one!

I second your opinions about Ned! We had the same assembly two years ago and the kids loved it. Our assembly was mid-year, so for the rest of the year, the kids brought their yo-yo's to recess... they were fascinated by them!! The message of the assembly live on for awhile, too!
