The obsession has gotten carried away just a bit when I started buying more and more puppets. I don't know how many puppets I've purchased exactly, but the numbers are quite high. What did you say? Of course my kids use the puppets...
I bring a lot of what I experience outside of the classroom into my classroom. When I saw Avenue Q last year, I fell in love with monster puppets. Watching Gob Bluth and Franklin interact has influenced me to get a Franklin of my own. This is a post to honor the monsters and puppets of Pre-K 108 (No. not the kids. The actual puppets). I purchased many of the puppets and others were received via donorschoose.org through our Mystical Monsters to Cultivate Creativity project. My students from the first year helped name them.
