Kiwanis Story Time and Puppet Show
The Kiwanis Club of Roseau has again conducted another community project, as they hosted a Puppet Show and Story time on Friday April 12th, at the Christian Union Pre School.
The overall objective of this event is to improve literacy among children and to encourage parents to help their children to develop love for reading.
The members of the Kiwanis Club read and put on a puppet display for the students and parents of the school as part of their “Read Around the World Project’.
Ms. Hamlet said the idea originated from a group discussion in that they wanted to do something different yet fun.
The Read Around the World Project is an annual event.
The Pre Schools that participated were the Sunbeam and the Christian Union Pre Schools.
The children appeared to be extremely excited about the show and deeply interested in the story.
Sitting in their bright and lovely uniforms, they clapped and sang to songs such as the ABC song and the Spongebob Squarepants theme song.
Ms. Hamlet said, the story was randomly chosen however, it teaches the children various lessons.
This is the first time the club has conducted a puppet show.
This is event was very successful.
