Readers' theater (also spelled "reader's theatre") is a terrific teaching tool for developing students' reading fluency. This fast and funny readers' theater 3-poem compilation is excerpted from ANOTHER SILLY POEMS COLLECTION. If you enjoy this free readers' theater poetry compilation, I encourage you to check out the full, 10-poem set, which also includes vocabulary pages.
This free readers' theater script includes a list of “Watch-out Words!” This feature highlights challenging words students may need help with as they practice. These words also make terrific candidates for classroom vocabulary instruction.
Additionally, the script contains numerous bracketed prompts—hints like [scared] or [amazed] that help guide students’ expression as they practice and perform.
