Mrs. Tsin from San Pedro CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Puppets for Distance and In-Class Learning

Help me give my students PUPPETS! These plush puppets have giant working mouths and movable arms…so kids can perform—and verbalize—with ease, plus they encourage children to get into the act.

My Students

I am so inspired by my special education preschool students! I get to create the students' first school experience.

I get to experience a lot of "firsts!" The first time a student says a new word like "turtle" or the first time a student joins in our music time and claps to the beat; the first time a student can complete a puzzle or sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star; or the first time they are able to ride the tricycle!

My Project

One of our favorite songs is Old MacDonald: we each put on a puppet, sing the song, and make the sound of the puppet. If they have the frog puppet, they say "Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit." It is so much fun.

I would love to send puppets to each of our students learning at home!

Our young learners love engaging with puppets. Especially when we do song time. We have been doing songs during distance learning and it has been successful and engaging. These puppets would be a wonderful addition for both distance learning and in the classroom!
