Hey all,

     On December 18th I’ll be teaching a holiday lesson at my kindergarten here in Japan. I was thinking about using Jojo the entire lesson instead of just during the reading time, but I haven’t used him for that long before. The class is about 50 minutes long and we do activities and games. Any suggestions on where to look for ideas on using your puppets in the classroom? I have seen a few videos on line, but the people there aren’t ventriloquists. I am planning to have my puppet dress up like an elf and be my helper in the lesson.

No suggestions for classroom materials, just my classroom experience. Kids will answer questions asked by the puppet with less anxiety than when asked by the teacher. Also, once they get going they love to teach the puppet what they know. Older kids will happily share their favorite jokes with the puppet, so when Goody didn’t get a laugh (my stuff failed to fly) he asked the students if they had favorite jokes and the class was in stitches. 

Perhaps you will be the one to write the book on the topic?

Bobby, I really can’t help but I’m sure if you continue to google it in various ways you may come up with more ideas.

I did a quick search on Amazon.com and found:

Practical Puppetry A-Z: A Guide for Librarians and Teachers [Permission to view this media is denied]

Best Of Dr Jean: Puppets & Storytime [Permission to view this media is denied]

I Am the Story: The Art of Puppetry in Education and Therapy (Human Horizons) [Permission to view this media is denied]

I found there are quite a few books on teaching with puppets in ministry.
