THE SILLY POEMS COLLECTION is a 10-poem collection of super-fast scripts that also includes Silly-poem Compilations of 3-4 poems, making it so a group of students can have a longer script to practice and perform. For a full description of the poetry collection (which includes vocabulary word work!), follow the link to that product.
Each script in this bundle includes a list of “Watch-out words!” This feature highlights challenging words for which students may need help as they practice. These words also make terrific candidates for classroom vocabulary instruction.
For a classroom reading block, readers’ theater can be used as a student-monitored station during small-group instructional time, and my bundle includes a Weekly Practice Checklist that provides a framework for students’ day-by-day practice. Furthermore, since the number of readers per script ranges from 2–7 readers, this provides flexibility in the grouping of students.
Additional materials include a basic overview of what readers' theater is, numerous tips and tricks for successful implementation, and a listing of some of the applicable Common Core Standards for grades 3-5.
All documents in the zipped file are in PDF format. Check out the product PREVIEW for a small sample of what you'll find in this readers' theater bundle, which is ready to provide a fast, funny, and favorite source of fluency practice for your students!
