Today in the Kinder room we made sock puppets after reading the book “It’s great to be calm”. The book is about a girl who can’t make a sock puppet and gets frustrated and upset. Her friend offers to help and they successfully make one and perform a sock puppet show to the rest of the class. We learnt that taking deep breaths and hugging ourselves is a great way to calm down when we’re upset or frustrated. We also unleashed our creativity and imagination by creating our own sock puppets.
