Developing Writing Skills through Puppetry


Puppetry is a powerful tool for learning because it teaches children through play. Puppetry incorporates visual art, theatre, and music. The use of these arts disciplines forms a foundation around which teachers are able to integrate the curriculum and support a child's success. Puppetry can be used to develop creative writing and body coordination. Through writing and movement exercises, all students are encouraged to express and formulate their own ideas and emotions. This seminar provides practical, hands-on experience for elementary teachers.
