This 25-page readers' theater activity pack makes a terrific reading activity for back-to-school or anytime! It includes the following:

>"Back to School with Mr. Loony": 5-page script for 5-8 readers
>Sound Effects: Cue Cards
>Vocabulary: Word Work activity
>Comparing with Similes graphic organizer activity
>An overview of readers' theater & the four elements of fluent reading

The script includes sound effects for which students may choose to include audience participation. Cue cards are provided that students can use to cue the audience for a unique, interactive readers' theater performance.

The script also includes a list of “Watch-out words!” This feature highlights challenging words for which students may need help as they practice. These words also make terrific candidates for classroom vocabulary instruction.

If you choose to do script-based vocabulary instruction, the Word Work vocabulary activity included with the script uses four of the “Watch-out words!” for more in-depth vocabulary study. A Sample Answer Key is included.

If you want to strengthen students' skills with interpreting and using figurative language, you can use the Comparing with Similes graphic organizer activity as another extension of the script. A Sample Answer Key is included.

A basic overview of readers' theater is also provided, including information on the four essential components of reading fluency—accuracy, rate, phrasing, and expression.
