A puppetry workshop was organised by Manaskriti school Faridabad where
Early Years teachers of Manaskriti School experienced and learnt participative storytelling and made puppets to enhance classroom interactions.
Seema Wahi Mukherjee ,an international storyteller,

A friendly puppet is the perfect teacher and playmate for a child. Interacting with these adorable playmates teach our children social skills . Also listening and relating to puppet stories develop their empathy and emotional intelligence.
Puppets are a good way to deliver information to students and help them retain it.
Puppets can help children to learn rhymes and songs as they imitate the puppet too. There are a number of motor skills that children can improve through playing with puppets. The fine movement required to wear a puppet helps with dexterity and using fingers to manipulate the puppet improves fine motor coordination.
