If you are searching for a way to get your students to enjoy reading, become more expressive, read aloud with confidence, become more fluent…then let the magic begin!!
I have found using Reader’s Theater with large and small groups really helps my students strengthen their reading and language arts skills! My class CHEERS every time I tell them we are going to do Reader’s Theater!! This technique makes reading come alive for your students and can really develop classroom full of confident readers! It is especially important that the stories are fun and engaging!
Reader’s Theater is a great way to reach the individual needs of a variety of students at one time! Accelerated readers can continue to develop expressive reading, and develop or expand their vocabulary. Struggling readers are real legitimate reason to read aloud and to re-read. Collaborating with peers is one of the most appealing features of Readers Theatre; students did not feel alone as they read, they did not have to read the whole text, and they experienced breaks between their reading.
This Reader’s Theater script is adapted from a great story called Sarah Boone: Inventor of the Ironing Board by Ruby Russell. This Reader’s Theater has parts for 3 readers.

A man entered the emergency room with both his ears burned.
“What happened?” asked the doctor.
“Well,” the man explained, “my wife was ironing behind my chair while I was watching TV. She put the iron down next to the phone. When the phone rang I answered the iron.”
“Wow that is terrible,” responded the doctor, and what happened to your other ear?”
“Well,” the guy responded, “right afterwards, the phone rang again!”
