Last week Child Center Summer Program students became puppeteers. They looked at Indonesian classical string puppets, popular wooden string puppets, and glove puppets. The students then made stick puppets, dinosaur finger puppets, paper bag puppets, and sock puppets. The puppets did a lot of talking, and the class performed The Three Billy Goats Gruff in groups with their stick puppets. This theme encouraged a lot of language work as well as allowing practice of fine motor skills.
