PUPPET SHOW BRINGS AESOP'S FABLES TO LIFE FOR KLR STUDENTS

PRODUCTION ADDRESSES KEY TOPICS FOR ELEMENTARY STUDENTS

November 21, 2013

Students at KLR were entranced by a production of Aesop's Fables by the Red Herring Puppets. The show is an original, rhymed version of the classic tales, told with original music by Cathy Riley and large table top puppets. These timeless stories are simple to understand and address topics relevant to school age children such as bullying, selfishness, competition, ingenuity, and the affirmation that little beings can achieve great things.

Puppet Show at RJK Elementary School

The show is designed for pre-K through 5th grade and includes The Lion and the Mouse, The Tortoise and the Hare, The Owl and the Grasshopper, The Fox and the Crow, The Crow and the Pitcher, and The Stork and the Fox. Many students were able to relate the lessons in the puppet show to the Common Core Listening and Learning Domains they worked on in the classroom.
