What Teachers Say

Toni wrote:
"What a discovery! There is a strong argument for the use of puppets in education especially given that recent papers indicate that learning is enhanced by spontaneity, emotion and play."

Jonathan P. Nelson, Secondary Educa wrote:
"Puppetools has been of great value or I wouldn't have put the time into it. You come at learning from an entirely different perspective and have given added depth to my understanding of creativity and learning. Your perspective is unique in education today--play is crucial to learning--and needs to be publicized more so it can be discussed and researched."

Kristin wrote:
"Great fun! I've always wanted to make my own puppets, then I end up resorting to purchasing them. Now I feel that I have the freedom to make a quick puppet that I am happy with."

Mary Ellen wrote:
"Also have done plant puppets for the Seed to Plant Unit, and Sun and Planet puppets for the Object in the Sky Unit. The students never get tired of them, and can't wait for a new visit to talk with them."
