October 2013. THEME: Delicious Vegetables. This months puppet story was a retelling of The Great Big Enormous Turnip that featured a horse, a sheep, a dog, a cat and a mouse. The animals all try to pull out the turnip but finally the mouse succeeds through determination. A few children could even identify the turnip at the end without being told what it was!
The students got to learn about sequence of events. I read the story, The Enormous Turnip a couple of times during the week. The purpose of the lesson was for the students to be able to recall the order in which they came to help take out the turnip. The students really enjoyed the lesson, and were able to understand the concept of the lesson.
