– use different types of puppets and learn how to make (or where to find) them
– examine and try out different types of stages appropriate for the classroom.

I would definitely recommend this to a colleague. Ms Wolfe worked very well with the students. She is a very patient person. The students loved the presentation and asked if we can have her come back again.
