Reader’s Theater is an evidenced-based method that helps students gain fluency when reading. SLPs can use these Reader’s Theater scripts to target language goals, articulation carryover, fluency, and comprehension.
This packet includes:
-3 different Reader’s Theater scripts, between 7-8 pages each, with 4 characters per story. The scripts are loaded with the most commonly targeted sounds for articulation students (/r, s, z, l, s-blends, th, k, g, sh, ch/, vivid vocabulary appropriate for 3rd-6th graders, pragmatics, problem solving, and figurative language concepts.
-Question cards that target synonyms, antonyms, and figurative language. Arrogant Aaron has 18 cards, Billy’s Blunder has 24 cards, Cupcake Cathy has 42 cards. Encourage your students to find the target word/phrase in the script and use context clues to determine the meaning/a synonym or antonym. Three answer choices are given for each synonym and antonym, but this method of cueing is easily eliminated if the SLP reads the question aloud.
-A worksheet with comprehension questions. The worksheets can be read aloud by the SLP or students can each write on their own sheet. Worksheets come with a teacher answer key.
-A data collection sheet to track accuracy for each character and each phoneme.
These print beautifully in color OR black and white. Print a set for each student in black and white or make a master set in color. It’s up to you!
