Parent Involvement Activities*Reader's Theater *
Reader's Theater is a fun way for parents to get involved in their child's reading!! What is Reader's Theater?? What is Reader's Theater? It's a way to involve students in reading aloud. In Reader's Theater, students "perform" by reading scripts created from grade-level books or stories. Usually they do so without costumes or props. Reader's theater is a strategy that combines reading practice and performing. Reader's theater is a strategy for developing reading fluency. It involves children in oral reading through reading parts in scripts. In using this strategy, students do not need to memorize their part; they need only to reread it several times, thus developing their fluency skills.
So, let's have fun! Go to the link below and pick a script on your child's reading level. Assign parts between you, your child, siblings, etc. Work on it all week! First reading, learn all the words. Subsequent readings, work on reading while stopping at periods, reading with expression, making a question sound like a question, and making an exclamatory sentence burst with excitement!
