Last week, after a couple of weeks of practice, we presented our Reader's Theaters. These are like plays but no one has to memorize anything. The students read their parts and we worked hard on several things: volume (being loud enough), speed (not too fast or too slow), and expression. In addition, students had to really think about standing still, holding their paper below their face and still, and following along while others were reading.
This first one is from the book Click, Clack, Moo, a book we greatly enjoy.
This next one is The Gingerbread Boy.
Our final Readers' Theater is Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
