Listen Buddy is one of the most delightful children's books that I have ever read. It teaches the children the importance of listening in a fun way!
Reader's Theaters promote reading fluency and reading with expression. They also help children practice their speaking skills.
This Reader's Theater has roles for six students. Character names are attached which can be made into a necklace or headband.
Listen Buddy can be practiced in a reading group or in a reading center. When the boys and girls have mastered the script, they might like to present it to another class, the principal, or before an assembly. You might even invite the parents in to see the children perform Listen Buddy.
If you are not going to present the Reader's Theater and simply using it for reading practice and fluency, you may let the boys and girls switch characters after they have mastered their roles. They love doing this!
Reader's Theaters bring an excitement and love of reading into the classroom.
Please feel free to make any changes to the script that you would like in order to make it work best for your students and your classroom.
AR Grade Level for Listen Buddy is 2.7.
