What is a Sponsorship?
We Work Together?
Together we can support educators and
community leaders in role modeling the kinds of skills our children need to
face social, economic, environmental and technological challenges. We provide
you with the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children and
their families through valued donations that contribute to a variety of dynamic
learning programs. This is a unique opportunity to encourage the performing and
visual arts, promote educational initiatives and build strong, healthy
communities that benefit every child.
The Theatre of Life Puppets uses
sign language, singing, music, humor, theater, the arts, colorful characters
and interactive activities to teach critical social competency skills,
environmental education, literacy and nutrition.
We've had our programs
approved by top educators and universities and the response from teachers and
school children has been tremendous. We provide an interactive combination of
in-school performance and tie-ins to the classroom curriculum, internet and
take-home activities. Together we can help families and schools create caring,
cooperative, tolerant and sustainable communities.
Use Live Theater?
Since 1990, the Theatre of Life Puppets has
charmed and educated over 1 million children and adults in communities all over
the northeastern United States and beyond. Testing has proven that educators
believe that the use of live theater increases students' capacity to retain key
concepts. The power of theater is used to develop critical thinking as well as
to engage the imagination. We develop performances and programs at the request
of school districts that are researched, tested and approved for their
effectiveness. Through the power of imagination, the children and audience
experience a connection with our puppet characters and in particular Sammy
Snail. This playful and enthusiastic relationship encourages children to
practice healthy behaviors and social competency skills that are role modeled
in each program.
What Does the Research
Less than 15 percent of students are auditory learners,
students that process information primarily through hearing it. Visual
learners, who process information primarily by seeing pictures, account for 40
percent of students. Kinesthetic learners, who respond best to hands-on
learning, are the largest group; fully 45 percent of students need immediate
sensory stimulation to learn effectively. Arts help visual and kinesthetic
learners- in fact, all students - to learn more quickly, retain what they have
learned, and feel more positive about learning.
What Is A Sponsorship?
Your sponsorship will
provide funding to produce and deliver educational performances and products in
the school districts or communities of your choice. Opportunities include
sponsoring live stage performances, video programs, CD-ROM projects, animated
online books, printed books and/or Internet programs. As an individual or a
qualifying company you can choose how you would like to serve target audiences
with specific programming. You can have your company brand tastefully displayed
with a tag line on a program page on www.sammysnail.com, printed support
materials and/or games. Specially created press releases help build community
awareness of your commitment to quality education. Publicity is garnered
through newspaper articles, television specials, special interest stories, and
radio broadcasts. Your financial support makes a difference.
