3 simple tricks to fun classes
Kids love Championeers! Adventures!
To help you get into the swing of Championeers! dynamic format, here are some tricks to get that flow going.
#1 Fake it until you make it
Kids just want to have fun! They aren't too concerned with what that looks like as long as it's fun. If you tell them it's fun, and you act like it's fun, they'll follow your lead and you'll all have fun together. Be aware, however, they somehow know if you are not fully present. They will not engage beyond your level of enthusiasm.
#2 Keep it simple
Kids have crazy imaginations. You don't have to be elaborate, just creative. For example, if you tell your students their pizza is actually a flying saucer from Mars, they'll gobble every last interplanetary pepperoni right off their plate as if they were on the Apollo mission itself. Tell them they can't use their hands or utensils to eat their "flying saucer" and now we're talking shear childhood bliss.
#3 Keep it moving
The kiss of death in any activity is timing. You almost can't out energize children. One thing that helps with flow is timing and sequencing. It takes a little bit to get it down, but once you do, you’ll be amazed at how children respond to the fast-paced, camp format of Championeers! The trick is never pause the excitement. Go from activitiy to activity as if each one totally tops the last. Your face and body language are your billboard to a pide-piper following. Don’t go against their energy, embrace it and channel it in the direction you want to go.
