Reader’s Theater is one of the best tools in the classroom to have students gain fluency, accuracy and comprehension in reading. It also reinforces listening skills, and teamwork.
I’m a bilingual teacher so all my plays will be written in English and Spanish so you can buy them separately in my store. Also, the script will come both highlighted for color copies, or B&W for saving ink.
Hope you enjoy a little drama!
