IMG_3500Monday morning we began our new Literacy topic of Readers Theater. We watched three different videos of children performing Readers Theater on stage and in their very own classrooms. We created a web of our observations of the videos and concluded that Readers Theater can include an audience, a narrator, scripts, movement, imagination and much more. For our second focus lesson, we created our own theater complete with lights, a stage, scripts, a curtain and microphones. The theater will be used throughout our study as we dive into Readers Theater and begin performing and creating our own scripts.
