The Animaplates workshops in my grade 5/6 class were a success. The kids were able to create beautiful original puppets and to present children’s stories to the primary grades. The kids were so proud of their creations! Since I teach French immersion class, this experience has really given the students
I must start by telling you how much fun I am having as I work on my giant nutcracker. I find myself smiling as I cut and glue and tear strips of newspaper. And, of course, I am humming some of the more familiar parts of The Nutcracker Suite as I work on each part.
A teacher with a passion for Animaplates built the Animaplates Chess Set with her students. As you can read in this newspaper article (in French), it was a great success.
I have all skill levels in my class and this was a project where everyone’s turned out beautiful!
I like the projects very much; my son and I had a lot of fun making them together.
Thanks for sharing your know-how. You make my four grandchildren very happy. Thanks again.
During a story writing project, Joelle made puppets with my grade 5 class. The students were more committed because they knew they would use their story for a puppet play. This was a very beneficial experience for them.
I heard about Animaplates from a colleague whose children had participated in one of Joelle’s workshops. I visited her website and discovered wonderful craft projects. For my event at the Museum, Joelle created a very special craft that was all the rage with visitors. It was a pleasure to collaborate with Animaplates.
I was very impressed and proud of my students when they presented [their puppet show] to the younger children and to the parents. They surpassed my expectations. They had memorized their text well and were able to remember and apply the constructive comments they had received.
Love your ideas! I am the activity director at a retirement home and many of these ideas are applicable to the elderly as well. Thanks!
