    The thesis deals with the role of the puppet in the development of social skills and the integration of foreign language children into the group. It also deals with the impact of the puppet on the dynamics of a group, group affiliation and compliance with rules. In the theoretical part of the thesis I talk about the pedagogical potentials of the puppet. I give reasons why it is such a good didactic tool and describe the positive effects on child development. I focus on children's social and emotional development and the development of imagination. I'm thinking about the kindergarten teacher's role and I'm figuring out what the Kurikulum for Kindergartens is about. I am looking for the therapeutic effects of the puppet and I am explaining the magic that the puppet carries within it. Then I present social and emotional development in the pre-school age. I'm also thinking about the child's social participation in the game, about the role of an adult in the game and about communication during the game. In the empirical part, I describe the condition and special features of a group of pre-school children aged 5-6 years. Then whitin the course of three weeks of my academic-educational work, I include the puppet and evaluate the final situation in the group, depending on the questions asked. That allowes me to check how the use of the puppet in the educational work affects the group of children. I find that the puppet, which is so actively involved in the educational process, contributes to the development of social skills, promotes interactions, helps to integrate foreign-language children and has a strong influence on the atmosphere and functioning of the group.
