Product Description
Here's a great end of year activity or for anytime of year activity.

Divide students into groups of four.

Have them "select a literary piece" to "rewrite" as a readers theatre. Templates, guidelines, and tips included.

Your students may even enjoy creating audience tickets to fit the theme of their play Visit Tickets Tickets Companion Product.

Please NOTE: this resource provides a solid method for students to go from "reading a familiar or unfamiliar text" to transposing it into a readers theatre.

Beginning with an existing text, will help students hone in on specific steps to develop a play. There isn't guess work and students are forced to do a "Close Read."

Once students are familiar with the technique, they can easily create an original readers theatre from a story they authored.

All templates may be shared with students as this will give them an understanding of what all groups need to so in order to benefit from this experience.

A readers theatre brings a certain delight to kids.

Students love to create speaking parts and to a degree, act out a character's role.

Because there is no memorization, students develop a greater sense of confidence when reading out loud.

One last idea is to invite the class to discuss effective techniques. This way all children will benefit from good approaches for future writings!

This resource does include the "Generic Student Directions for Script Writing Behaviors."

Enjoy!
