This small group reader's theater is for four students. The key concept, besides reading fluently, is the 4 Properties of Multiplication and the Math Vocabulary that goes along with it. When I used it in my class, the students who performed it REALLY got into it. That might be because I myself love math. They did a wonderful job and, a month later, STILL remember the properties and why they are what they are. My class is 99% ESL and language is VERY important in every lesson not just in reading.
I have an entire book of math reader's theaters for sale. 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.
My Name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is wonbyone. The majority of my students are ESL. Fluency is something that needs to be addressed everyday in creative ways. I hope you enjoy this one. My goal was to tie in some science with language arts. Please feel free to leave comments and suggestions. They help me to make things better as well as to know what others are interested in.
