For a warm and fuzzy feeling from your Sunday reading, try this nice post from OUP about puppets in the classroom. I like how the author (Kathryn Harper) classifies all the possible uses, from lowering the affective filter to acting out stories and dialogues. By the way, I’m a big fan of soft toys and have been known to use them even with young adults (very ironically, of course! 🙂 ), but I have found something new in this post to experiment with.
Do you often use puppets or cuddly toys? Does it really help, and how?
