Here's a readers theatre script starring your favorite Beanie Baby Decoding Buddies -- Sammy, the Sound It Out Snake, Chunky Monkey, Digger, the Dog Detective, and Skip-It, the Frog. Join Reader Robin as he (or she) meets the "strategy-zee" characters and learns how to figure out tricky words. Your students will love this! You can incorporate paper plate "masks" and beanie baby "helpers". It truly makes decoding strategies come alive - especially if your students perform for parents or another class. Enjoy!
