From the Tommy James Website:
Inspired by my good friend Mark Daniel from KIDabra! Thanks Mark! Same routine as the standard Flash Card Openerbut routined for reading incentive programs. You begin your show holding a large card which has a big bold letter “R” on its face. You point to the R, encouraging the audience to respond and the audience yells out “R!” You remove the card and place it at the back of the stack. The next card has a big, bold letter “U” and once again, you point to it, urging the audience to respond. Place it at the back of the stack. The next card shows a big, bold RED letter “E.” Point to it and the audience shouts out “E!” You correct them and say “RED-E!” (Ready)
You bring the two previous cards tp the front and start all over again, repeating the above sequence. This time the audience yells “R, U, RED E!” The next card shows a big, bold number “2.” The audience yells out “2!” Place it at the back of the stack and the next card shows a big bold question mark. (HUH?)
All of a sudden a display of 5 hinged cards spring open making a colorful sign that says “READ?!” You finalize the phrase and ask “Are you ready (Red E) to READ?” They respond “YES!!!” And off you go! Click on video above to see full routine.
The cards are colorful and large measuring a full 5″ by 7″ and can be seen in a large hall. The handling is super easy so you can concentrate on presentation. Priced right and a perfect way to begin any READing show!
