Ms. Novak and I are planning a really cool HOT block together. We are going to be creating found object puppets. This idea came about when Ms. Novak learned about the artist Ashley Bryan. He has been creating found object puppets for many years. He gives them African names and creates poems to describe them. Ms. Novak's class will be doing the same. I am very excited about this collaborative project.
Some pics of Ms. Novak's students creating their own found object puppets, and a sneak peek at some finished puppets.
