Reader's Theater. If you haven't tried it, you're missing out. How do I know? Because this is the first time that I have REALLY used it! Can I just say ... I L-O-V-E-D it! Over the previous week we have been working on reading our plays. Each group was based on their level! I'm so proud of them. I totally LAUGH OUT LOUD as my kids changed their voices and tones to match their character's point of view and feelings! This is one teacher who went home with her side's hurting, head aching, and heart filled with joy!
This is my lowest group ... and they IMPROVED!
There is an assessment that I used as well. Hmm. I wonder if I could upload it ... Hmmmmmm .....
