Puppets are brilliant for exploring emotions. Just look at poor Gail the Snail. How do you think she's feeling and why? Discussing feelings and thinking about WHY others might feel a certain wayis vital for successful social relationships.
Social Puppets is a program by Pelican Talk that targets 25 social scenarios common in the early childhood setting. With a strong focus on social understanding and emotions, this is a fun way to model, discuss and practise social skills. You can purchase Social Puppets here.
