In this read aloud, kindergarten and first grade students are introduced to a series of humorous plays involving four animal characters that live in the jungle. Stick puppets are used in this video. Plays are a wonderful method used to increase a child’s fluency and oral language skills, especially if a child enjoys reading the play again; and this play is no exception to this rule. Children can easily create a stick puppet to use as a prop while reading this play with others.
