Reader's Theater

There is no better....funner way to practice reading fluency than by using Readers' Theater!
There are no props, costumes or scenery, but kids love using only their voice to convey the heart of a great book.  There are many scripts out there waiting for you or you can create your own.  I personally LOVE to whip up a script to go along with a book we've read because I can tailor it to meet the needs of all my readers.  I think the secret to success with Readers' Theater is all in how kids prepare for the "performance".  I am a very structured and organized teacher and that's how I run the preparation part of it.  So if you've never done Readers' Theater in your classroom or have but want to know how I run it, click below to download my guide.
