Readers theater motivates and engages readers. Used for fluency instruction, it is a proven research-based reading strategy (best practices) that provides a context for authentic reading and re-reading. Great for centers or small groups and to include in sub packets!
For added fun, copy, cut out, and let students make headbands to wear with the character pictures by stapling them onto construction paper bands.
The story of Aladdin may be familiar to students from the Disney movie, but the original story has several differences to compare/contrast. This script adapted by My Reading Resources has 9 speaking parts. Graphic organizers
are included to compare/contrast
with another text or the Disney movie and to identify the conflict/problem/solution.
Students become excited about reading with readers’ theater. Help your students develop fluency by allowing multiple readings of the script. Encourage them to use expressiveness, intonation, and inflection when rehearsing the text. Readers’ theater provides an authentic reason for rereading – performing for an audience!
