Poems and Puppets will be our theme.
We have picked out three poems from this lovely book; Poems for the Very Young, it is full of lots of sing songy poems that are super engaging.
We are using felt, a glue gun and some doul sticks to make the puppets.
I first had the kids draw out there puppets on a regular sheet of paper.
They then cut out the picture and used it as their pattern on the felt.
I am trying to let the kids take the lead on this.
They picked the poems and had to think through how many puppets per poem.
I have placed Autty in charge of all things 'puppets' and Lydia in charge of the stage.
Here they are testing out there first stick puppets. :)
My remain nameless child who balked at this idea is warming up just fine and enjoying herself thoroughly.
As of now we have 2 puppets down and 5 more to go, plus
memorisation and the completion of the stage.
So far we work on this idea 2 times a week for the last 30 to 45 minutes of our morning...clipping right along.
Poems and Puppets part #3....soon to follow. ;)
In our little west corner- creating puppets and memories.
