Some things i do with reader's theater:
go over parts of a script (dialogue, directions...)
have students highlight their parts
practice reading independently first to decode words
discuss comprehension, visualize (draw picture, create a poster...)
practice in small groups daily for several days (about 20 minutes):
work on decoding first, then add expression and pacing
reader's theater is fun and a great way to work on fluency

Here's a great article about why and how to use RT. This article will make you want to start using RT tomorrow.

There are many scripts here, all on one page. Scroll down to see them.

Previously I read about Mandy Gregory's site which gives a suggested five day schedule to introduce, practice, and present reader's theater. I think it is excellent:

There are also scripts to be found here.

Hi, first, THANK YOU so much for providing us all with these scripts- they are excellent!

Now I'll be dumb for the experts here... I have not used many scripts.... I am about to take over a Grade 3 class.

HOW do you teach reader's theatre? I don't want to buy a self-help book but HOW do you go about it?

* What do you do to introduce it?
* Do you have to have the actual book to study first?
* How many kids each have a script or do they share?
* What other activities do you do to go with it- anything - is it a bit like a theme?

~~ What is your daily how-to please? ~~

If I just don't get an answer, I'll have to make a new post about this...

Thanks again!

Here are four reader's theater scripts. They include:
Tacky the Penguin (Helen Lester)
Penguin Pete (Marcus Pfister)
Moe the Dog in Tropical Paradise (Diane Stanley)
Mrs. Toggle's Zipper (Robin Pulver)

All of them have a winter theme, so this is the time of year to make use of them. Have fun!!!
