Suggestions for Implementing Readers Theater:

Readers Theater is a fun and effective way to build fluency and confidence.  It is a wonderful alternative for your 2 easier days in the Guided Reading Block. Any story can be easily adapted into a readers theater script.
 

If your script is based on a book, I recommend reading the book first. Then I would type the script using a larger font and give each student a copy. Have the children use a yellow crayon, or highlight pen to highlight only their lines. Then let them practice, practice, practice.

This is lots of fun and a wonderful way to develop expression and fluency. The children can make scenery and props in cooperative groups. When ready to "perform" - invite parents and watch your readers shine.
