"Integration of Puppets in Story Telling and Sequencing"

                  Storytelling comes alive with puppets. Puppets are a good way to deliver information to students and help them understand and retain it. It helps students to retell information they've learned and remember it. Teachers can use puppets to demonstrate proper pronunciation, take them into an imaginary world, and also help students develop language skills. Puppets allow students to escape into an imaginary world. The purpose of the puppet is to create interaction, fun dialogue, and even an element of surprise into your play and learn activities. 

Puppets lend themselves to being the characters in your stories and allow your child to join in with the action. So I use to prepare the characters and backdrop of the lesson to take them into the imaginary place. And also help them to walk into the story. I use puppets in different ways to teach lessons. Here I have prepared the puppets and pasted them on the green board to teach a lesson.

                        The lesson name is "THREE BUTTERFLIES" In the story there are 6 characters are there. (Sun, Sunflower, Lily, Red butterfly, Yellow butterfly, and White butterfly) And the story happens in a garden. So I have prepared the puppets and pasted them on the green board. I also used the board to teach the story. You can see this in the below images.

                           So I have used the board to draw the rain. There are five scenes in the story. The three butterflies were friends. One day while playing in a garden it suddenly started raining. They looked for shelter and went to the sunflower and lily. But they didn't accept their conditions. Finally, the Sun pleased with their care and love and stopped raining.  I have managed the puppets and board to make the scenes and story clear and lively. You can see my student's presentation in the below video.

                   By working together using the puppets, students develop conversation skills such as risk-taking and appropriate responses in a conversation. Research also shows that dramatics provide an opportunity for students to develop a sense of story. And also we use puppets to develop emotional and social skills as well as language skills. So integration and managing the puppets in a creative way give better results in teaching and learning.
