Stick puppets are a fun way to reinforce pre-reading and pre-writing skills and to help young children be ready to read.This set of animal stick puppets features the four characters from The Very Hungry Duck–Duck, Bunny, Puppy and Kitty.
You can download and print the pdf by clicking the picture above or by clicking here. Then simply color, cut along the dotted lines, and tape craft sticks to the back. Reenact the story, or make up a new story of your very own with the characters.
Watch for the free companion The Very Hungry Duck Fruit Stick Puppet Set, coming later this week, as well as other activities to help reinforce learning while having fun.
