This is a small group reader's theater. It was written for four students. The idea of this reader's theater is to reinforce the formulas used to find each of the equations as well as to teach and practice the language involved. It is just one more way to tie Language Arts together with Math. Math has a language all its own and it is very important to find ways to practice it and use it.
My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone and I use this reader's theater to introduce perimeter, area, and volume as well as to review the subject with my students.
This reader's theater is unusual in that it will ask your students in the audience to participate at time. If you are looking for a book of math reader's theaters, I have one that includes this small group reader's theater. If you are simply looking for a good review of the math language and formulas for perimeter, area, and volume - this is the one for you!
I write small group reader's theaters so they will work better in centers and to avoid having long wait times between student's lines. Wait time is not reading time and often turns into off task behavior time. Small group reader's theater helps to get students reading more and encourages even reluctant readers to practice fluency. My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone and I hope that your students enjoy this script as much as mine did. Most of my scripts are black and white so that they can be photo copied easier and take less ink. Please let me know what you think.
Perimeter, Area, and Volume - Oh MY!
