Enhancing Reading Fluency and Comprehension Using Stick Puppets in the Library
The authors suggest that students need to become physically as well as academically involved in their learning. In this light, there are procedures presented for having students make stick puppets that can be used in a variety of learning activities including, but not limited to, readers' theatre and story retelling. We propose that fables can provide a good foundation for developing activities featuring stick puppets, speaking and reading fluency oriented activities. We enncourage teachers and librarians to help make the puppets in order to incorporate first-hand knowledge of the procedures for their students.
