Puppet Theater for Learning

My students need a large, sturdy puppet theater.

My Students

Setting...lights...action! Once a quarter fifth grade students take the stage in my counselor's office, bringing to life some of the best loved stories and songs of all time. Presently our students are using a very small stage that doesn't allow for much space and creativity.

All fifth grade students get the opportunity to serve as puppeteers for our entire school.

We are a Title I school where we have Universal Breakfast - every student gets breakfast in the morning. Our students lack many cultural and social experiences, so literally taking them to the theater is quite an experience for them.

My Project

Right now our theater is a very simple board with a small space for the puppets to appear. Getting a larger puppet theater will allow for more characters and more movement in the show. Having a larger set will allow students to organize the puppets and have everything in place for the show. It will also help prevent lags from act to act.

The puppet theater is a unique and creative way to review all of my classroom guidance sessions.

We review all of our character education traits and support literacy at the same time. The puppets reinforce cause and effect, perspective, and involve the staff and faculty. Many teachers lend their voices to the puppets and students love recognizing the voices. Probably the most rewarding aspect of the theater is the leadership opportunities available to all fifth graders.
