Perfect for diverse articulation groups! Contains over 20 plays for groups of 2-4 students targeting the most difficult sounds to master.

Readers’ Theater is an evidence-based strategy for improving reading fluency. In Readers' Theater, students rehearse reading a script repeatedly to prepare for a later performance for peers or other audiences. Students are assigned parts or roles for performing the reading of the play's text.

Research supports the use of Readers’ Theater to increase fluency, intonation and confidence. (Martinez, Roser, and Strecker, 1999 and Griffin and Rasinski, 2004).

This packet contains over 20 plays for diverse articulation groups! It is perfect for those students who need a little extra boost in practicing sounds at the reading and conversation level. Tried and tested on my own students! I've found that this method:

1. helps my students remember their correct sounds

2. provides practice for using appropriate tone of voice and intonation

3. improves their confidence, especially if they can then perform for a small audience.
