Readers' Theater Poetry Bundle:
Here's a terrific bundle of three collections of fast and funny readers' theater poems. That's 30 different poems for students to perform and enjoy! Plus, vocabulary Word Work pages are included. My "Readers' Theater Poetry Bundle" includes the following:
*THE SILLY POEMS COLLECTION
*ANOTHER SILLY POEMS COLLECTION
*THE T-REX FROM MY CEREAL: A SILLY POEMS COLLECTION
Each 10-poem collection of super-fast scripts 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 each collection, follow the link to that product.
Each readers' theater script 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.
If you choose to do script-based vocabulary instruction, each collection has Word Work vocabulary pages for the three 3- to 4-poem compilations. Each vocabulary page uses four of the “Watch-out words!” from the corresponding compilation.
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 readers' theater, numerous tips and tricks for successful implementation, and a listing of some of the applicable Common Core Standards for grades 3-5.
All documents are in PDF format. Check out the product PREVIEW for a small sample of what you'll find in this Readers' Theater Poetry Bundle
