COMBINED SHOW & WORKSHOP:  PRE-SCHOOL

Let’s Play Puppets™ focus
After a glove puppet performance and demonstration by Sue, children use her workshop puppets to learn how to move puppets constructively.  This is the perfect beginners’ workshop for very young children.  Puppet movement, combined with storytelling, links to aural and oral literacy.  Children are encouraged to become storytellers.  We begin as one large group then Sue takes smaller groups in turn for the storytelling with puppets component.  
No materials required.

Fee:  $220 per pre-school session (includes GST)


Storytelling focus
Storytelling performance followed by age-appropriate workshop.  Sue introduces the art of storytelling to promote imagination and creativity.  A useful adjunct to any literacy program.  The performance and workshop introduce different styles of storytelling i.e. group storytelling, participatory and using props.  Promotes confidence, imagination and ‘taking turns’.  We begin as one large group then Sue takes smaller groups in turn for the storytelling component.
