Reader’s Theater

I have found that one of the best ways to improve fluency is have my kids do Reader’s Theater.  Not only is great for them, but they also have a blast doing it.  We usually just do it for fun in the classroom.  Occasionally, I’ll invite the first grade class from next door over to see what we have been doing.  My students really enjoy performing for an audience!


Once a year, however, we do a big reader’s theater production for all of the first grade parents.  Each first grade classroom performs their own play, complete with props and costumes.  I just found some really great FREE scripts at Teaching Heart that I wanted to pass along.

    What a great way to get the kids really involved in the texts! I took a course in college (a couple, actually) where we did this kind of thing but unfortunately didn’t get the opportunity earlier in my education. And thanks for passing along a great resource!
