Ronald McDonald AssemblyPublished by dorie.thatcher on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 13:18
Ronald McDonald visited Salem Elementary and performed some outrageously, funny magic tricks! While performing his magic he talked to students about good test taking skills to prepare them for the end of year tests. Chloe Peterson was called up to help assist Ronald in one of his magic tricks. He asked her to pick a balloon out of the hat. After several attempts Chloe kept coming out empty handed. Ronald talked about how sometimes you just have to slow down and think about it. He then had Chloe reach into the hat one more time, while taking her time. Finally she reached into the hat and pulled out a balloon. Ronald turned the balloon into a beautiful flower for Chloe to give to her teacher, Mrs. Clayson. Ronald related this to test taking by explaining that if you ever get to a problem and you don't know the answer right off, to think about it and slow down and it just might come to you.
