Dramatic Play Through Puppetry

Teaching Artist: Paul Vandivort

Guided by puppeteer Paul Vandivort, students in this program learn to use puppets to enter imaginary worlds and to act out stories. In small groups, students practice cooperation while playing games that teach math, phonics and public speaking skills. Creating their own animal sock puppets gives students the opportunity to continue dramatic play at school and at home, as well as teaching them about animals in the natural world. Also available for after school in any district. Also available for virtual residencies.
