PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

End-of-Year Readers' Theater Poetry: SCHOOL'S ALMOST OUT: A SUMMERTIME SILLY POEMS COLLECTION: Looking for a fun summer-themed, end-of-year activity? This 8-poem collection of fast and funny summer readers’ theater (or readers' theatre) scripts is just in time to launch your students into summer vacation!

* * * * * * * * * *
This readers' theater activity pack is also available as part of a discounted bundle of 9 different holiday-themed readers' theater activity packs and poetry collections:
*HOLIDAY READERS' THEATER ALL-SCHOOL-YEAR FUNNY BUNDLE.
* * * * * * * * * *

The 8 poems are:
* School's Almost Out
* Stuff I Learned This Year
* The Sea Witch
* The First Day of Summer Vacation
* The Lemonade Stand
* A Checklist for Summer Vacation
* Soggy Sandals
* Asking for Three Dollars

Each poem is presented as a 1- to 2-page stand-alone script. Appendix A: Silly-poem Compilations then provides three additional scripts—each comprised of 2–3 of the poems from the collection woven into a single script, making it so a group of students has a longer script to practice and perform.

The scripts include lists 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, Appendix B: Word Work provides vocabulary pages for the three silly-poem compilations. Each vocabulary page uses four of the “Watch-out Words!” from the corresponding silly-poem compilation. A Word Work: Sample Answer Key provides a basic, kid-friendly explanation of each word’s meaning, which can be used when actively teaching students the words.

For a classroom reading block, readers’ theatre can be used as a student-monitored station during small-group instructional time, and Appendix C: Weekly Practice Checklist provides a framework for students’ day-by-day practice.

Additional materials include a basic overview of readers' theatre, numerous tips and tricks for successful implementation, and a listing of some of the applicable Common Core Standards for grades 3-5.

SCHOOL'S ALMOST OUT: A SUMMERTIME SILLY POEMS COLLECTION is ready to provide a fast, funny, and favorite source of fluency practice for your students!
