Puppets in Education 2021-2022 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 includes a synchronous and interactive opportunity for students to learn about Anxiety and tools to deal with it.

We are hopeful to return to in-person shows this fall. As of right now. we will be offering the Worry/Anxiety puppet program (K-4), Anxiety/Stress workshop (5-8), and our Bullying Prevention puppet program (K-4). We will be looking at our other programs over the summer to determine which we will be offering and will know more in August. If you foresee needing a specific program in the fall that we haven’t mentioned here, please let us know.

Program Cost, Availability and Logistics:

Scheduling

Our schedule fills up quickly. Please let us know your top three dates as soon as possible.

Costs

As of May 2021, the cost for a full day of programming (five shows) is $3,500. Luckily, Vermont COVID Education Recovery Funds are now available, and our Worry/Anxiety presented meets the AOE focus area of mental health and well-being. We are able to invoice you now for your Fall show date.

We encourage every school that is interested in having the puppets visit their school to reach out to us, regardless of cost. Subsidized, sponsored, or grant-funded shows may be available in your area. We encourage you to contact us with your unique requirements.

Presentations

We are currently able to perform five shows in a day. For in-person shows, we prefer to keep the number of attendees to between 40-60 individuals per show, although COVID restrictions may still need to be taken into consideration. At least one teacher/educational professional per classroom must be in attendance during live shows.

Our virtual shows are done via Zoom to ensure safety and security for all participants. Our preference is two to five classrooms per show (grouped by grade if possible), and students can be either in their classrooms – with the show projected onto their whiteboard – or remote.

We understand that each school in Vermont is facing its own unique needs and sets of precautions/requirements as we move into Fall 2021. Please contact us with any additional questions you may have, as well as any unique needs your school might be facing. We want to work together to ensure your kids are getting the supportive, educational content they need.

Please contact karen.sharpwolf@vtfn.org to receive information about the 2021-2022 programs and to inquire if grant funding is available for your school.
