The Puppet Show was the Aistear theme in our Infant Classroom for March.
Children took turns at four different stations.
Art-where they made their own paper bag puppets.
Small world-where they used finger puppets in the doll house and construction areas.
Sand play-using stick puppets.
Role play-where children took on various roles; ushers, shop assistants, puppeteers and audience members.
It was brilliant (and hilarious) to watch the little shows they came up with. At the end of each session, we went in to see the group perform their puppet show as a whole class. We also looked at how to make shadow puppets- lots of videos on YouTube if you want to try at home! This was a theme they really enjoyed.
