I'm a teacher by day and playwright by night, integrating reader's theater, informational text, common core... and most fun of all.... RHYME! I wrote all these rhyming reader's theater adaptations when I could see that kids wanted to listen to iPods and not me. They know lyrics by heart, but reading the classics was not happening. These rhyming scripts solved the problem! Then I got my doctorate with these scripts as the subject of my dissertation. They are now research-proven by dozens of teachers across the US to increase engagement, literacy, fluency, and meet Common Core State Standards. I hope it works for your classes as well! Best of all, they are free on TpT for a limited time! More on my website www.readrhymerepeat.com. Happy Rhyming!
