All the World's a Stage: Dramatic Play for Literacy!
My students need and would be overjoyed to receive puppets and a puppet theater to help them perform their dramatic writing!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
It's hard to feel confident sharing your writing in public when you're an English language learner. But puppets makes writing and speaking fun!
My students are bilingual learners who love to read and create stories of their own.
Many of them struggle with shyness and feel intimidated when it comes to speaking in front of a group or sharing their own writing. They are bright, funny, spirited, and enthusiastic learners who deserve all the support in the world.
With a beautiful tabletop puppet theater and a full array of detailed finger puppets, my students will be able to perform their stories for each other and invited guests! These resources will be the foundation of the Performance Center in our Literacy Block stations.
My students will be able to take on the roles of playwright, performer, director, and audience members. They will improve their oral and written fluency, become more proficient and creative writers, and find their voices as English speakers and wordsmiths!
With a puppet-based Performance Center, my students will have the opportunity to make tremendous gains in their literacy development.
By giving them this tremendous gift, you will grant them the power to see themselves as effective, engaging, and confident communicators!
