This Reader's Theater was designed to get kids practicing the Zeno words. The 107 most used sight words. There are parts for 4 students. There are other words in the script but they are low words - used for 1st through 2nd grade. On the first page is a list of the words used that are not on the Zeno word list. In the script, Nan is having a bad day. She left her key at home and she left the milk out when her dad called her. It got very warm. Her mom is mad at her. Nan’s friends help her feel better and tell Nan that things will be okay.
I use reader's theaters to encourage my students to practice fluency. It is a fun way to do something that they need. The lower a student's level, the harder it is to motivate them to practice which is why I have written these lower level scripts. Most of my scripts are in black and white so they photo copy easily.
The problem with many other reader's theaters is that students spend a lot of time waiting for their part. When you have a small group they get more practice in and less off task behaviors take place. My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone.
