This is a reader's theater for 4 students. It is not a normal reader's theater. This one is designed to use as an intervention tool for students who are struggling with improper fractions and mixed numbers. It is one way I can mix language arts with math. Students are still working on fluency but they are practicing math vocabulary as well as talking their way through the process of making a mixed number an improper fraction and vice versa.
I have two more Fraction Freak Reader's Theater that deal with fractions. You can by this one now for $3. If you purchase all of them this way it will cost a total of $18. OR you can purchase all 6 of my math reader's theaters for $12. It will save you money. I use reader's theaters to encourage my students to practice fluency. It is a fun way to do something that they need.
Most of my scripts are in black and white so they photo copy easily. This one does have a colored picture on the first page but the rest is black and white. The problem with many other reader's theaters is that students spend a lot of time waiting for their part. When you have a small group they get more practice in and less off task behaviors take place.
My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone and I hope that your students enjoy this script as much as mine did. Let me know how things go!
