Why Reader's Theater?
In the primary grades we focus a lot on getting kids to read fluently. Many times our students confuse fluency with speed. That message is sometimes inadvertently given when our focus on timed tests is great. Students start believing that the amount of words they can read in one minute becomes the primary goal of reading. Reading is supposed to be fun and also informational. Our students can gain so much from reading, but if they’re solely focused on speed, they may miss the message from the text. Reader’s theater gets students to stop and not only focus on their speed, but to also focus on their prosody. They must be vigilant of their tone and of the message the character they are portraying is trying to communicate. Reader’s theaters lends itself to tone and message because students are essentially engaged in conversation with one another.
