Puppets in Education 2020-2021 Virtual Program Information
PiE’s virtual puppet programming for grades K-4 includes a live introduction with a puppet and person, a professionally filmed engaging skit, and a live Q&A with a puppet at the end. Children will have the chance to share their thoughts and ideas with the puppets, just as they always have, but in a new way! They can also email the puppet after the show. We will work with you and your school to meet virtual platform protocols for video and chat tools. Grade 5-8 workshops (starting in January) will include a synchronous and interactive opportunity for students to learn about Anxiety and tools to deal with it.

October 15, 2020 – June 2021: Anxiety/Worry for K-4
January 2021 – June 2021: Anxiety/Worry for K-8; Bullying Prevention for K-4
Our virtual 45-minute presentations can have up to 25 people each, and we can provide a maximum of 5 presentations in one day. The first presentation of the day costs $250, with $150 per program thereafter.
