Storytelling Puppets for Kindergarten!

My students need storytelling puppets to bring three of our favorite stories to life!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

We are a group of emerging readers looking for interactive puppets to bring our favorite stories to life!

I teach a fantastic group of kindergartners who are excited about reading!

My kindergartners also LOVE puppets! I have a little alien puppet that reviews their sight words with them and they grin and giggle the whole time. During our literacy choice time, several of my students like to use our puppets to tell each other imaginative stories. My students are enthusiastic about learning and happy to come to school each day. It is a pleasure to teach such a great group!

My Project

I am requesting 3 puppet sets from some of our favorite stories. We will have puppets from Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Three Billy Goats Gruff, and The Three Little Pigs. We will be able to use these puppets during read alouds to build interest and engagement. The students can use them independently to practice retelling the story. Interactive storytelling kits are great fun for kindergartners!

In kindergarten we are building reading skills and strategies that will help students throughout their academic careers.

I will use these materials to increase comprehension and help my students make connections and relate to the characters. These materials will also make reading fun and engaging for my amazing students!
