Reader’s Theater

I love performing reader’s theater with my students after reading  a book together. This strategy keeps students engaged and excited as they anticipate how they will act out their character’s role.

More on this strategy and a cool link:

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. The best reader’s theater scripts include lots of dialogue.
