The Magic of Puppets

I have this puppet that I usually pull out to help teach history, but this year I decided to use it in a different way. His name is Small Moment Sam and he was with us for our writing lesson today. It's amazing how engaged the children are when I use a puppet. I didn't use a puppet voice, but instead, Sam talked in my ear and I told the kids what he was saying. They were cracking up, but also listening closely when he was talking about stretching small moments. Sam will be back tomorrow! I also have a "Grandma" puppet. Hmm...what could I use her for? :)

  1. OMG! I love the idea of using a puppet! I'll anxiously await what you do with "Grandma" puppet.

  2. It's true! Puppets really do inspire interest. Amazing, isn't it? Sam is such a cutie-pie!
