Shadow Puppet Shows

Check out just a few of the fantastic literature-based shadow puppet shows created in library by 6th graders! These were performed during our Family Reading Night to the delight of all! Thanks to the great Mr. Lafferty for taping and compressing so we can enjoy them again. I am so proud of our students and all the skills, ingenuity and hours of work they synthesized to bring these works of art to life! Bravo!!!

WOW! Pretty beautiful, kids!!!  I hope to have students who did not perform on Family Reading Night to showcase their mad puppet skillz for classes during the school day, as they are available.  We had so many incredible shows!
