Puppet Workshop

Puppetry is a great way of creating a story and literally building a character.
Firstly we discuss materials, the main materials being wire, paper and tape.
Then we draw up our puppet and write a short story about our character.
As we are making our puppet we are visualising and discussing the puppets character and the building of his /her story. They might sing, dance, be an astronaut or live on Mars!
To build the story we use the 3'P's: Person, Problem and Place.
These element are the basic ingredients of our story. Our puppet is a blank canvas when constructed and we can decorate according to the story we have created.
Its so much fun we don't even notice we are doing work or writing so much!

I really like this lesson because it appeals to both practical students and kinaesthetic ones - you make a puppet to tell a story and write around the making - a great way to get over the blank page but also there is a personal character for the puppet, a way to have real emotions in a physical way beyond the 2-D story!

Our motto is that "we don't do normal". Everyone who comes to The Homework Club is different and is here for a different reason. It's not important if they are dyslexic, have reduced hearing or simply don't "get-it". This Blog is about creative teaching that suits everyone, all of the time! No one needs to be "special". The work is done in groups, so students avoid stigma and don't feel only they need help!

What stood out to me was the sheer narrowness of the rolex replica uk coupled with the tight turns throughout. Biver is known for making his own cheeses so it no surprise that this cheesy sauce battle took place. I am replica watches entirely sure who won, but I believe watches store took this one. In a time when there is uncertainty in the industry and a vast swath of rolex submariner replica for buyers, especially in this price range, both of these timepieces stand out and outclass many similarly priced offerings. That about it for branding on the watch, which is refreshingly subtle considering rolex replica with a racing team titled after an energy drink. The two are basically the same apart from some replica watches uk titanium carbide on the base of the pushers and the center of the case. The matte ceramic swiss replica watches is deep and attractive, matching the dial wonderfully.
