You do not know if your students would like to speak a foreign language or not. Let them make their own puppets and try. You will be amazed at the ability of children to use the language and with the joy they amuse themselves with it.

Delicate, impressive, very touching. Which inspiring lessons we could teach from this story? Congratulations to Josh Burton and the great team who produced this beautiful work.
I would like to share this amazing story with you all and also invite you to take a look at my students photo album of this story on http://brazilianfriends.multiply.com/photos/album/58/I-Know-an-old-lady-who-swallowed-a-fly and see how they enjoyed it, perhaps even more than I did. Maybe you want to take a step further and get some wiki information http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/There_Was_an_Old_Lady_Who_Swallowed_a_Fly.
If you like storytelling, you must visit Canterbury. The city is famous for the Canterbury Tales and it is amazing visiting the theatre where small groups move into different scenarios to listen to them. In the picture I am imitating the powerful ‘Wife of Bath’, one of the tales you can learn more about on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wife_of_Bath’s_Tale and visit also the site http://www.canterburytales.org.uk/home.htm
Castles, the Cathedral of St Thomas, the boat trips and the very streets of Canterbury make you feel yourself in medieval times.
