Why should I try readers theater with my class?
1. It builds reading confidence!
2. It develops fluency!
3. It helps children learn to read with expression!
They don't need to memorize the script!!!
They just need to read and reread the text!
You can use this script with a class of any size!
I have included some suggestions for getting started and how to implement the
activity with a group of any size!
Pocket Chart Header for assigning roles and reference
Character picture cards for assigning roles and displaying "who's who"
Story picture and word cards for games and matching activities: great warm up activities!!
This is based off of the story Hedgie's Surprise by Jan Brett. The book is not included, but I suggest checking it out from your library or buying a copy to read to the class first!
It is a good Springtime book because of the hen and egg theme !
I've included little character icons next to each line, to make it easier for the kids to follow along.
See a sample page in the preview to get an idea of the difficulty of the text.
