Readers theater resource

Does anyone know of a resource for readers theater scripts with just two parts? I would like my students to work with a partner during center time.

Not reader's theater exactly...

I can't think of any reader's theater scripts with just 2 parts, but there is an excellent book (Newbery winner!) with poems that are read with two people. All of the poems are about insects (which my kids love) and they are really beautiful when performed by partners.

It's called:
Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices
by Paul Fleischman

I think there is another poetry book by him (about birds) that also has poems for two people, but I've heard it's a little harder than the first.

I hope this helps!

Reader's Theater for Two

I bought the book Developing Reading Fluency from Creative Teaching Press this summer. I have the Grade 3 book. (CTP 2249) It has 10 Plays for two readers to improve phrasing and fluency. It also includes 5 Reader's Theater scripts for four readers.
Hope this helps.

There's a series of books called You Read to Me and I'll Read to You by Mary Ann Hoberman. These books have many different stories that two people can read together.

This website: www.teachingheart.net/readerstheater.htm also has a bunch of scripts that you can print off. Many are based on popular picture books and chapter books. I use it for my centers a lot. I'll see 4 or 5 kids reading a script together and many more watching them. They love it!

Poems work great for what you need. Go to www.gigglepoetry.com and you will find great poetry that is already typed for you. All you need to do is cut and paste it to a word document, add the words child #1 and child #2, and you will be ready to go.

I am attaching a poem that will give you the idea of what I mean. If you would like others, please email me at easycz@sbcglobal.net.

Type in reader's theatre in google. The one I've used is www.aaronshep.com
Also, Scholastic has some great ones to purchase through book orders and some of the other teacher book companies have them too.

Also, I think www.busyteacherscafe.com has some too.

I use two books from Scholastic. They are called You Read to Me, I'll Read to You! They are wonderful! I have used them in so many ways, but in my new third grade, I paired up opposites and am having them practice. It has worked great! These are by Mary Ann Hoberman. The first one is just funny quick stories and the second one is full of funny fairy tales. Hope this helps. They are just two person scripts!
