(4 or 5 reading roles)
I have always loved Readers’ Theatre as it is a powerful tool that helps students with fluency, phrasing, intonation, and more because they are doing multiple readings of text with a purpose. Reading and re-reading are so important for early readers, and in fact all readers. Readers’ Theatre brings fun into this important skill. This story brings in the added integrated component of bringing in an character. This can be used to spark important, and difficult discussions. The illustrations are mesmerizing!
