This past week we have been practicing Readers' Theatre! Readers' Theatre is a lot like reading a play except the actors don't have to memorize their lines or move around on the stage. Instead they stand in a straight line and read their part from a script. The purpose of Readers' Theatre is to practice reading like you are talking. Students practice reading fluently with expression. On Friday the groups that had been practicing in small groups all week, presented their Kevin Henkes story to the group. Next week the children will be reading new Kevin Henkes stories in new Readers' Theatre groups!
