The course will focus on four main areas:
  • Developing emerging language skills (vocabulary and comprehension).
  • Physical development.
  • Social and emotional development.
  • Creative and imaginative play using a variety of teaching aids and techniques.

I’ll be doing two sessions which will cover different types of puppets you can use in the early-years classroom.  We’ll also look at:

  • Puppet manipulation and voice.
  • Introducing your puppet.
  • Lots of ideas on how to exploit your puppet

The workshops are aimed at Pre-school and Early Primary stage educators in ESL-settings.
