Just Say Know! (Yourself!) A program about Self Esteem.

“Just Say Know-Yourself!” is the message Magical, Motivational Educational, Entertainer Greg Phillips shares with school children throughout the country in his motivational and inspirational
Mr. Greg uses the art of magic to grab the children’s attention then talks with them about a variety of motivational topics: “Say No” to drugs, set goals, you can do anything you put your mind to, learn from your mistakes and more — all while enjoying an entertaining magic show!  Mr. Greg’s fun loving character is appreciated by both students and faculty; in fact, teachers often comment that they have as much fun as the students!!!

“JUST SAY KNOW -YOURSELF!” gets your students “pumped up” and ready to get more out of themselves, school and life.
Some of the messages included are:

  • You are important!
  • Set your goals high!
  • “Say No” to drugs and alcohol!
  • School is important!
  • You can be anything or anyone when they grow up!
  • It’s on you!
  • Don’t give up!
  • KNOW who they are!
  • Being different is Cool!
  • Use their talents to create the life they deserve!

“The real magic in life begins within when you KNOW YOURSELF! !”    

 When your school hosts “JUST SAY KNOW -YOURSELF!” School Assembly Program you get more than just a magic show.  You get an award winning magician talking with the children about the “Real Magic” in life — the ability to be and do anything you want.  With lighthearted motivational lessons that cover peer pressure, manners, kindness,
and getting along well with others.
This is a VERY POSITIVE, inspiring, uniquely entertaining, wonderfully upbeat program that encourages a “You Can Do Anything!” attitude.

You will receive support materials: a teacher’s kit with ideas for discussion and additional resources; posters to promote the show and a press release to let your community know the “extra mile” you are going
for the children’s success.

Use “JUST SAY KNOW -YOURSELF!”
in Your
Anti-Drug Campaign
during Red Ribbon Week.

Though
“JUST SAY KNOW -YOURSELF!”

is not specifically an anti-drug program, it will fit in nicely with your campaign against drugs.  After all, a positive self-image is the first step toward keeping a child away from substance abuse.

Many schools have used “JUST SAY KNOW -YOURSELF!”
as a very effective part of their anti-drug programs and now you can too.  Being a part of your drug education campaign you can probably use resources from state and federal sources to help defray the costs of the program.  Many school districts have already have approval to use “anti drug money” to pay for this show.

During “JUST SAY KNOW -YOURSELF!”  I share inspirational stories about some of my favorite characters from History and even some personal friends! Like, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison & Harry Houdini stories and situations presented through entertaining magic, comedy, storytelling and other “tools” in my arsenal! The kids have a great time at the program show and learn something at the same time.
It’s a win-win situation for everyone.

AND AS A SPECIAL ADDITION!!!
It’s a scientific fact that!

In a report from www.Science20.com
“MAGIC CAN BOOST CHILDREN’S SELF ESTEEM!”

So Mr. Greg will give each child a specially printed Magic Wand
with several tricks on it!

He will then take a couple minutes to teach all the children a simple magic trick that they can do and perform for their friends and family.
A Self Esteem Starter! Just like Mr. Greg got!

This is the coolest Character Development Show in the world! Amazing magic tricks are used to illustrate each motivational message.
Everyone is reminded that they can achieve anything they set out to do, and that every person is a unique treasure!


The Magic of Nutrition A nutrition and wellness program.

Ingredients

3 Cups Comedy
3 Cups Fantastic Magic
2 Cups of Motivational,
Educational Content

5 Cups  Audience Participation

Recipe:

Mix together all the ingredients in a large group setting for an exciting, irresistible, laugh a minute Magical, Motivational, and Educational Program!

Mr. Greg as the “The Magic Chef” mixes these ingredients for 45 minutes to teach the importance of good nutrition!

The Magic of Nutrition is a fast, exciting, fun-filled program to help teach kids about nutrition. Children will learn how to identify bad nutrition habits, what to do to stay healthy, and how to eat the right kinds of foods and drinks.  Teachers and staff will also learn many identifiers and techniques to help change bad habits and get healthy.
Through stories, games, comedy and audience participation, students will become more aware of this “hidden” problem and help learn how to make their school a healthier, safer and more fun place.


Kids and Teachers Learn:

  • How to eat properly to stay physically fit.
  • See the Food Pyramid change into the new USDA Nutrition Plate and have it clearly explained.
  • How to determine beneficial foods from unhealthy foods
  • See children participate in a hilarious cooking lesson.

The Magic of Nutrition will give kids strategies to improve their health!

According to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies

  • 1 out of 5 children aged 6-11 are now obese
  • Over the past three decades, the rate of obesity has tripled in children ages 6-11
  • Obesity in early childhood can lead to an increase in health problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, and depression
  • Approximately 9 million children over the age of 6 are now considered obese

Wow!
So what can we do to help our students?

“The Magic of Nutrition” blends magic, comedy, and stories in a way kids can relate to, to really create a message that resonates and gets them FIRED UP about making themselves healthier.  I’ve blended proven techniques for eating and living healthier, stories, and some fun and powerful music and magic to really make learning fun. Students will be involved with fun, amazing demonstrations of how to improve nutrition.

The “S.P.A.M.” acronym explained:

After talking with teachers and other educators, and discovering what they want students to learn about nutrition, I developed the “S.P.A. M.” acronym to make everything easy to remember. (SPAM is also prominently featured in the program!)

S – Skip The Soda Pop, Drink Water!

Soda pop is considered a “junk food” and that means it’s ok to have every now and then as a little snack. But water is the most important thing that we can put into our bodies!

P –Eat the Pyramid and the Plate!

The next point of the show discusses what the students should be eating in their diet. We introduce the food pyramid and new USDA Plate, and comically discuss what the different food groups mean, and why it’s smart to eat from all of them!

A – Avoid Junk Food!

Next we talk about avoiding junk foods. We all know there are foods that are good for us to eat, and foods that are not so good to eat. But do students really understand why? The program also has another important message, that “junk food” is not BAD. We let the students know that a junk food snack is ok every now and then, but the majority of what you eat should come from the food groups.

M – Move And Exercise!

An important part of the program is to “move and exercise.” Moving and exercising is a way to strengthen and build our bodies, improve our flexibility and be better learners! We have all seen people who lift weights to make their muscles stronger. Well, our heart is our most important muscle, and exercising is a way to work out that muscle!

And Best of all, this program works! Give it a try! 


Arith-ma-trix     

Using world-class magic, Mr. Greg  combines mathematical concepts like measurements, multiplication, shapes and geometry.
Your students will be amazed and entertained.
They will laugh and “oooh” and “aaah,” and without even realizing it,
they will be reviewing essential mathematical concepts, many of which are covered on standardized tests.
The Arith-ma-Trix Program is the perfect assembly to get kids excited about math or kick off a math night.

A fun-filled magical program designed to help kids understand concepts of math and numbers. Encouraging all kids that they can use their brains to achieve their goals of math, problem solving and engineering!

Mr. Greg makes Math fun!

The Weird Science Magic Show

Is a program designed to give children entrance into the exciting world of illusion, comedy, and scientific demonstrations! But mostly leaving them with an appreciation for science!

The Weird Science Magic Show is a teacher tested and proven means for giving audiences a chance to learn how “magic” works while instilling audience members with a keen desire to learn about science.

The Weird Science Magic Show consists of laboratory demonstrations and experiments plus great magic tricks. The audience, students and teachers alike, are even shown how to construct and perform some of the tricks. The materials needed to make the tricks are found easily.

Many of the tricks are based on scientific principles. As the kids learn the secrets, they learn the scientific principles!

Mr. Greg uses magic to teach science to students of all ages from kindergarten to college in an educational, entertaining and fun program. Mr. Greg will introduce is friend “Professor PHEOC” who comes to life before their eyes and takes the kids on a comical look at Science!
(PHEOC is the acronym for the scientific method of problem, hypothesis , experiment, observation, and conclusion!)

Mr. Greg is the science magician who involves his audiences in problem solving situations filled with laughs, educational lessons, and unforgettable, magical entertainment!

The audience learns that science is useful, fun, exciting and worth studying.

Oh, the Magical Places to Go!

Dr. Seuss as children travel on a journey around the world. They will learn that reading is fun.
