Duck and Rabbit Puppets For Beginning Writers
Kids are proud of their ability to communicate with their writing skills. These Duck and Rabbit Puppets for Beginning Writers provide an opportunity to use these skills along with their imagination to pretend their puppets are having a conversation. You may be surprised to see what they have to say! This project can be used in a classroom setting or for a single child who makes both puppets and creates a dialogue between them.
If you are looking for more puppet ideas check out the Puppets section for hand puppets, finger puppets and much more.
A system of graphic marks was invented independently in the Near East, China and Mesoamerica and are believed to be the earliest form of writing. Source: The Evolution of Writing by Denise Schmandt-Bessera
- White Card Stock or Heavy Paper
- Glue Stick
- Craft Sticks
- Crayons, Markers or Pencils
- Print out enough ducks and rabbits for each child. We’ve provided them in both color and black and white for you.
- Cut out the puppets.
- Have the kids decide what they would like their puppet to say e.g I want a carrot or My name is Ducky. Wait to see what kind of phrases they might pick before giving them suggestions. It might be wise to have them write out their sayings on a scrap piece of paper first.
- Once they have written their sayings on the puppet, glue it to the craft stick and have them pick another puppet to talk to.
I’m sure they will proudly show their friends and family their handiwork. Learning can be so much fun.
