The students I teach are from a Title 1 school district in Texas. There are no opportunities for them to participate in puppetry, or drama within our city. This type of activity could produce potential singers, actresses, and drama participants. I am encouraging them to reach new heights this year. We do music in my class but I'm incorporating puppetry as well as reader's theater. That is basically a play written in a form younger kids can read and bring to life with inflections, and expression. The tablet would allow kids to record each other performing plays, puppets,and reading stories in reader's theater. Later the students will be able to watch their performances. It would actively engage those recording the program as well as keep the performers on task. This theater and everything that happens in it will nourish the creativity within each child. It will provide avenues for kids to flourish and come alive in their own unique ways.
