Puppets and Props Lesson Plan

In this English Language Arts activity, students participate in a read aloud, shared or guided classroom experience and then work together to create a scene from the story using Doodled finger puppets. Story retells are a great way to build language, speaking, and listening skills. The students’ puppets and shows will reflect their understanding of story structure, sequence, and reading comprehension.

3Doodler Stop-Motion Lesson Plan

Invite critical thinking and design to your next ELA class. Encourage students to demonstrate their understanding of theme and character development with a creative project. In this lesson, students choose a scene that best reflects the theme and create a 3Doodler stop-motion animation film to illustrate the selected scene. This hands-on project will help assess comprehension and presentation skills.
