Reader’s Theater is a wonderful way to help develop reading fluency. Fluency is built by practicing familiar reading material, and there is no better motivation than participating in a play. Re-reading for practice can become boring, and children need to be engaged and happy to learn best. I used to teach thinking skills to the whole school as part of my gifted ed teaching position, and this is a play I wrote for one of my classes. Free Readers Theater Play: THE 4 LITTLE PIGS
Again today I used Masketeers clip art by Ian Nicholls. You wouldn’t have to have access to the masks, but it would be nice. In this printable, I did include name tags teachers can print, laminate, and use from year to year. I hope you have fun with these plays!
