Readers' theater poetry bundle of SIX different collections of silly poems:
This bundle of fast and funny readers' theater poems includes 50 different poems for students to perform and enjoy! Vocabulary Word Work pages are also included. My "Readers' Theater Poetry Bundle of Supersized Silliness" includes the following collections:
*THE SILLY POEMS COLLECTION
*ANOTHER SILLY POEMS COLLECTION
*THE T-REX FROM MY CEREAL: A SILLY POEMS COLLECTION
*CUPID SHOT MY TEACHER: A VALENTINE'S DAY SILLY POEMS COLLECTION
(Valentine's Day readers' theater poetry)
*THE OCTOPUS ON MY HEAD: A SPRINGTIME SILLY POEMS COLLECTION
(spring readers' theater poetry)
*SCHOOL'S ALMOST OUT: A SUMMERTIME SILLY POEMS COLLECTION
(summer readers' theater poetry)
Each collection of super-fast scripts also includes Silly-poem Compilations of 2-4 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 poetry 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 of Supersized Silliness
