“Bear-y Tale Theater” is a 45-minute program for Pre-K and Kindergarten students. Using puppets and storytelling techniques, this interactive session builds emergent literacy as the children help two puppets solve an important problem. Emphasis will be on developing an understanding of basic story elements and retelling skills.
Linda’s professional career has provided the exciting opportunity to present numerous workshops for professional staff and families with a focus on speech, language and literacy. As an elementary principal, Linda met with children monthly to use storytelling and puppetry activities to support academic and social skills. As a teacher and SLP, puppets were her amazing assistants!
She has also been a speaker on the topic of multisensory interventions for speech and language through puppetry, print and play. She is founder of Creative Speech Products and author of Teddy Talker® speech-language materials.
