Hi, Joanne - and thanks! for befriending me and joining Biblical Storytelling. Looks as if you, your puppets and your audiences have a grand time, and that's just as it should be. I want to add my 'welcome' wishes to you, as well as a standing offer to assist in any way I can as you grow and stretch as a storyteller!

Hi Joanne, Most Elementary Schools have methods to gain control over classes. Sometimes they use a series of claps... and the students clap back. Or a hand raised... every once in a while I will have to move or remove a child to make an example

Thanks Joanne, I like Potato too. It is a fun story to tell. You're right, eye contact and voice makes all the difference. But if you like what you're telling then so will the audienace.
Keep telling.

Joanne, we must be long lost cousins as we have so much in common. I taught a Wee Story Time for 4 years. I included 20 different activities in back to back. I used a lot of music, fingerplays, concept activities, interactive reading aloud and storytelling. Our class began with a hello song with Max the puppet dog. Next we did a simple theme song and short story. Afterwards we did a body parts song with bells. When we finished I would call out put your bells on your head, tummy, etc. We chanted Nursery Rhymes as we shook maracas. Mem Fox said in her book Reading Magic that children who can recite nursery rhymes at age 4 are lead readers at age 8. I'll send you some of my lesson plans. More later~
