Starting from the fact that children love puppet shows and role playing, the idea of having pupils made their own puppet theatres was tempting. So children of B’ Class embraced that idea and they decided to make it true. They used some shoe boxes, construction paper, glue, ribbons and … a lot of imagination and here are the results:
As soon as their theatres were ready, we had the opportunity to put on our “little plays”. The characters were some animal figures we had previously made. The “story” was quite simple and the volunteers to act it a lot.
Children enjoyed it and I believe that the whole procedure can be very useful, since they will have the chance to learn, repeat and consolidate language structures and new words in an amusing way.
