Approach to Geography ". It is a wonderful performance and fits perfectly
into our third grade curriculum. Bob encourages student participation which ,

"This is a letter of recommendation for Mr. Bob Conrad who performed for
the third graders at Lloyd Harbor School this fall. Mr. Conrad's program "
A Magical Approach to Geography" was utilized in direct connection with our
third grade Social Studies curriculum. Furthermore, it was a part of our
Cultural Arts initiative at lloyd Harbor School.
Mr. Conrad is an energetic presenter who has the ability to capture
children's attention for a prolonged period of time. He is motivated,
knowledgeable, and was great with our students. While presenting to our
children he allowed them to express themselves and participate while
managing the group at the same time. His appreciation and understanding of
geography is evident. This was definitely a worthwhile opportunity for our
students, and we look forward to his return."

"I would like to thank you for the wonderful presentation, "A Magical
Approach to Geography" which you presented to our third grade students.
The topics and concepts you presented effectively reinforced much of what
the students have been studying in their social studies classes. The students
were captivated by your use of storytelling, puppetry and ventriloquism.
There were frequent opportunities for student participation. The teachers
were particularly pleased to hear the students share with you their
knowledge related to geography and conservation.
Once again, I commend you on the quality of your presentation and hope we
have the opportunity to work together again."
