21st Century Puppet Pals Enrichment Course Video Showcase from GAMS


Puppet Pals is an Enrichment course offering for our 21 Century Program at GAMS. Students in Grades K-2 explored emotions, feelings and communicating with others as a starting point.  From there, we explored and created all sorts of puppets from finger faces to sock and plate puppets to stick figure puppets as a form of story interpretation to our final thumb puppets made of clay.  The students were able to explore various methods of conversations and story telling as well as exploring their inner creativity.  They became very absorbed in the lives of their puppets and over the course of 7 weeks, became puppeteers!

 Ms. McCartney was able to bring her experiences back to Newburgh after studying as a Fellow with master Puppeteer at the Academy of Teachers in NYC last Winter.
