Availability: In Stock
Reader's Theater . . . and So Much More! is written for grades 5–6. This exciting resource contains plays, skits, and independent research activities with an innovative twist for differentiated instruction. This high-interest book of humorous skits and plays is a jumping-off point for research and creativity for students of all ability levels. Each of the reader's theaters comes with suggestions for differentiating and extending the lesson's content. These plays not only provide a legitimate reason for students to reread texts and practice fluency, but they also promote cooperative interaction with peers.
Review by: Susan Hyde, Educating Maine - January 21, 2011
The three books in the Reader's Theater...and So Much More! series by Tom McGee, Brenda McGee and Debbie Keiser provide ready-to-use reproducibles for grades, 2–6, 3–4, and 5–6. Each book includes scripts that integrate high interest reading material into comical skits. In contrast to other reading programs that may not appeal to kinesthetic-tactile learners, the Reader's Theater books encourage elementary students to read more fluently while also encouraging articulation, proper pronunciation, and inflection for dramatic interpretation. Students are motivated to reread, not for the sake of repetition or because a teacher “says so,” but rather for the purpose of dramatic presentation.
