Are you looking for a new way to spice up your music classroom this fall? Well West Music has got just the answer for you! Puppets! We are so happy to announce that we are now carrying Folkmanis and Aurora brand puppets to add that spice you are looking for. Puppets are a wonderful tool for encouraging students sing, interact, use their imaginations, and so much more! With so many options to choose from, we are sure that you will find at least one that will suit your needs. If you want to go a step further, try pairing puppets with children’s literature – sure to be a hit!
As an early childhood teacher and Educational Consultant, some of my favorite puppet/song/book combinations are:
Jolie the Giraffe puppet (540140) and the book Giraffes Can’t Dance (835037). This is an inspiring book/CD set that encourages children’s dreams of greatness.
Fletcher the Frog puppet (540163) and the book Hop Jump (835070). This is a fun movement story that will come to life with this frog puppet.
Every pirate needs a parrot and Petey the parrot puppet (540099) is the perfect compliment to the book Port Side Pirates (844154). This book can be read or sung to the catchy tune that is performed on the included CD.
Make this adorable dog puppet (540155) bark along to the book/song How Much is that Doggie in the Window? (835071) This book/puppet combination is sure to make your students smile!
We hope that you are as excited about our new line of puppets as we are! If you have great ideas of how to use them in your classroom, we would love to hear! Just drop us a line on Facebook, comment on the website, or give us a call! We ALWAYS love to hear from our customers!
