Crafts in the Classroom

This little finger puppet is a powerful tool, helping students remember the story of The Pokey Little Puppy!
Puppets and felt pumpkins can be powerful tools in the classroom when used correctly. They are much more than a toy, they can bring an enjoyable connection between a story and a student. The visual and soft sensory experience of having a finger puppet can build a memory of the storyline. Those special moments are not forgotten. When a teacher goes out of their way to make s story special, students notice.
Also, when kids learn to sew their own finger puppet as part of the lesson, the students take part in the story home with them!
