Kia ora Jeffrey and Whaitaima,
Thank you very much for running a workshop at the Playcentre Conference. It was very popular!!

Longer time frame next time.
English “letter book” sounds would be great if they were more phonics based eg. A as in hat not cake.
More puppetry tools for the future.
Have them do a 10 minute energiser for the whole group. Invite them back.
