Readers' Theater is on the Horizon!

It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring...
I wonder where in the world that came from?!  But needless to say I'm ready to build an ark up here in Anchorage and the only one snoring is my husband.  It's 12:35a.m. and I just got home from working up at school.  I usually stay late on Friday nights, wear my jammies and get tons of stuff done.  This weekend I was there Friday and Saturday night...lots to do.

As I was planning out my first quarter I got excited that we will start doing Reading Groups in 2 weeks!  We have a Back-to-School unit to do first with our Houghton-Mifflin reading curriculum.  Then I get to start meeting with small groups of kids and really zero in on where they are at with their reading.  I have some VERY high readers and some pretty low readers.  In addition to using guided reading books, I started supplementing with Readers' Theater plays last year because #1 The kids have FUN with them, #2 It's fantastic fluency practice and #3 I LOVE to write scripts!

Come take a peek at these free scripts:

I'm getting so excited to do Readers' Theater again I'm throwing a

Happy Labor Day everybody!
