What Teachers Say

Christina wrote:
"I am sorry that I didn't have a course like this when I started teaching. I'll never teach without a puppet again."

Joyce wrote:
"After three days of using puppets a la Puppetools, I found out how easy they are to work into the curriculum."

Sandra L., (High School) wrote:
"I thought I would learn to make puppets. I learned so much more. I've discovered how much fun it is to take outrageous risks in class. Older kids--seniors and rough dirt bag and honors level kids--all respond to puppets. Grown ups are hungry to play and be playful. How easy it is to incorporate puppets into curriculum-- how even a finger puppet changes the whole tone of a lesson. How creative the children become. The possibilities for using puppets in the classroom are endless."

Marylin wrote:
"I thoroughly enjoyed the puppet exchange and felt far less self-conscious when the focus wasn't exclusively on me. Another colleague came in to introduce her puppet to my class. Again, the children got their puppets out to introduce theirs in return. The kids are loving every minute of this. This has been the most enjoyable first few weeks of school I can remember!"
