"Fixing Puppets so They Can Talk": Puppets and Puppet Making in a Classroom of Preschoolers with Special Needs
Servizzi, Kelli
Early Childhood Research & Practice, v10 n2 Fall 2008
This article describes the ways in which puppets were used in two preschool classes of 3- to 5-year-old children with special needs in Indianapolis, Indiana. During their study of puppets, the children created topic webs, used and created different types of puppets, listened to guest experts, and participated in a workshop conducted by nationally renowned puppeteers. The article concludes with teacher reflections and the Indiana Foundations for Young Children that were addressed by the puppet activities. (Contains 19 figures.)
