Reader's Theater

Plays have long been popular in the elementary classroom. Reader's theater has developed as a means to adapt popular literature to scripts. Children can be introduced to theater as casual read throughs or more formal plays depending on the time, talent, interests, and goals of the lesson. The ultimate goal is to improve fluency and give children confidence.

I'm working on finding resources for homeschooling groups and teachers who want to introduce reader's theater to their students.
