Turning the tables with colleague, Irene Widdup, Michelle shares her stories of puppets. From "Stacey on the Keyboard" with Stacey and Peter, the mice who live under the dance studio floor, she shares the power of action books - those stories you can explore with activities from the antics on the pages. She introduces Newton Little Beak and Kepler, who will be mascots for the Choose Love Movement. Her Stingray puppet makes an appearance talking about breathing and the Choose Love Formula. The majestic nature of this sea creature creates some fun ideas for moving and expanding the breath. This episode finishes with a guest appearance by Dan Devion or "Dan the Music Man" as he shares how his music and puppets have been expanded in special arts projects.
Part 3 of the three part series on Puppet Power, we hope these episodes will have inspired some ideas on how role play, leadership skills, emotional and social learning, story telling and character development can be enhanced with some make believe and creativity. Puppets do open a new world for children and adults, and bring the "fun" back into learning.
