Practical Puppetry

Practical Puppetry composed by Mark Burrows. For narrator. Classroom Music, Classroom Management. Grade K-4. Text. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.30-2569H).

From "The Accidental Drum Circle" to "Totally Twisted," Mark Burrows's resources are always creative, practical, and full of unique ways to bring fun and learning into the classroom. Threadbare Theatre's guide "Practical Puppetry" is all three and more. There are directions for making more than a dozen puppets, ideas for puppet stages, and five different scripts. And because puppetry is less about the puppets and more about the puppeteer, you'll learn how to manipulate your puppet, find its voices, and use it to teach music concepts. Mark even shares his "Top Ten Mistakes" so that you can be spared the same fate. Children love puppets, and if they love it, they'll learn it. Thanks to "Practical Puppetry," you can bring that learning into your classroom and be good to the environment at the same time--found objects make up more than 90% of the materials used to create these puppets.
