WEBINAR: USING PUPPETS IN THE CLASSROOM

WEBINAR: USING PUPPETS IN THE CLASSROOM

Book your place on this website.  At end of Registration on our online booking you will see this sign  to obtain your Zoom Link.

 Puppets are a fantastic tool for the classroom. This webinar is largely based on Siobhan Prendiville’s amazing work with puppets in therapeutic and educational settings. Siobhán is a primary school teacher and psychotherapist, who specialises in play therapy and has many years of experience working with puppets. The webinar will outline ways in which you can use puppets effectively across the curricular areas. Puppets can help to increase attention, learning and are fun and engaging. Puppetry can help to improve upon communication skills, overcome language barriers, and teach self-control. The addition of a puppet to a child’s world can positively influence them to become more comfortable and open up to their world. Puppets can become an integral part of the classroom environment. They can be used to increase dialogue, modify inappropriate behaviour manage the classroom, or add an element of play to lessons. Puppets are widely recognized for their beneficial influence on learning and social development.
