I struggled to motivate my first graders to reread passages to practice fluency. Then I started creating scripts. Many of my students were eager to practice their lines until they could read them fluently.
This product is ideal for regularly adding some meaningful prosody practice into a first grade classroom. It includes 56 scripts to build fluency for 14 weeks of Reader’s Theater.
This product couples sight words with phonics for authentic fluency practice within a balanced literacy approach. Students relish practicing their reading prosody in meaningful ways like reader's theater. These scripts were written specifically for first grade students by a first grade teacher. Each word was carefully chosen for first grade readers.
Scripts focus on high frequency words and phonics skills, and are aligned with Lesson 17-30 of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s Journeys curriculum.
