Thank you so much for visiting!|
If you need a particular script for a thematic unit, email me and I will see what I can do.
My scripts are geared for grades PreK4-2nd grade, with an emphasis on High Frequency Words.
Reader's Theater is a great tool to help your students develop
and increase their fluency levels.
According to Tim Rasinski, professor at Kent State University, Ohio, "research has demonstrated that practiced reading or repeated reading does lead to significant gains in fluency, which is a key element in effective reading programs."
There are two tools that I use the most, first is the teaching reading skills, and the other tool, that I enjoy using and find rather useful is answerthepublic and its chrome extension. It is very useful when you want to figure out what questions can be asked around any topic based on the natural language keywords used in conversation.
Reader's Theater does not require extensive preparation, fancy costumes, expensive props and sets, or memorization. It is fun to do, and most children love to perform.
Students are actively engaged in learning, while becoming more practiced, fluent readers.
