Readers' Theater: Tall Tales

Readers' Theater: Tall Tales

Readers' theater is a powerful tool for developing reading fluency. Fluency is the ability to read quickly and accurately while using expression and proper phrasing. Fluent readers group words together in meaningful ways as they read. As readers improve fluency, they are able to focus on the meaning of the words they are reading--thus improving comprehension.

A variety of scripts are provided to meet a range of reading levels. Students have opportunities to read individually, in pairs, and as a group. The scripts do not require costumes, props, or scenery.

Show Time: Music, Dance, and Drama Activities for Kids
by Lisa Bany-Winters
In Show Time! kids will learn to become "triple threat" performers, developing their skills as singers, dancers, and actors through more than 80 activities that include imitating a musician or musical instrument, acting out a song, creating a mirror dance, making puppets and playbills, and more. Along the way, they'll learn about the history of musicals, discover musicals about history, and find out how to get it all together before the curtain goes up. Show Time! is perfect for teachers needing to prepare performers for a show; for parents looking for fun ways to fill spare minutes with their kids at home, in the car, or in a doctor's waiting room; and for kids wanting ways to enjoy themselves on their own or in a small group. Several play scripts, a list of suggested musicals for kids, and a play glossary are included.
