Puppetry Activity 18.01.18

Using a puppet to tell a story is a wonderful technique that can lead children to discover the joy of literature and learning. Puppets can be used to stimulate conversations and encourage shy children to communicate, making them more confident. Thus helping them  in improving social skills. Puppets can meet the emotional needs of children by being their friend when they feel lonely. Children trust puppets and do not feel threatened by them and can easily express their feelings, thoughts and fears through puppets which they might otherwise find difficult to voice to adults. Puppets can also assist children having special educational needs. In MIS, use of puppetry for story telling is a regular feature to stimulate and extend a child’s imagination and learning skills.
