21TRA087 Webinar for Infant Teacher on Using Puppets to Develop Oral Language Skills





In this session participants will be introduced to how to incorporate puppets into the classroom and the various weekly adventures it can take children developing a range of both constrained e.g. alphabetic knowledge and unconstrained skills e.g. auditory memory. In this session we will explore a variety of skills that children need to be literate and through a case study with a puppet this will be exemplified.
