What Teachers Say

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."

Mary Ellen wrote:
"Also have done plant puppets for the Seed to Plant Unit, and Sun and Planet puppets for the Object in the Sky Unit. The students never get tired of them, and can't wait for a new visit to talk with them."

Toni wrote:
"What a discovery! There is a strong argument for the use of puppets in education especially given that recent papers indicate that learning is enhanced by spontaneity, emotion and play."

Mary Ellen wrote:
"You have helped me to feel more confident using this media, and I feel that I have gained more 'direction' for tweeking my puppet communication 'skills', or should I say "play"!"
