Pupperoos recently ran a series of exciting shark puppet workshops at Fowler Road School. The students have been learning about dangerous animals and by the end of the day, they had created a whole school of sharks, piranhas, dragons (and one pug dog)! Here is what one of the students wrote about his experience:
Yesterday we made hand puppets with Miss Kay from Pupperoos. We used foam balls for the eyes. We used short string for the mouth to make it open and shut. We used paper plates to make the fins. I coloured my shark red and purple. Making the eyes was my favourite part. I had fun making the puppet.
Here is what one of the teachers said about the workshop:
Thank you again for [the workshop]. It was great. All the teachers were very impressed and the kids absolutely loved it. My kids are still talking about how much fun it was. – Bianca Mangano, Classroom Teacher
