Engaging Students While They Build Fluency and Comprehension Skills


Grade 2 students became VERY excited and enthusiastic about reading this week when they were presented with the opportunity to participate in Reader’s Theatre. 


The goal of Reader’s Theatre is to enhance students' reading skills and confidence by having them practice reading with a purpose. 


The format for this provides an opportunity for students to develop comprehension and fluency through multiple readings of the text.  They are encouraged to use expression, intonation, and inflection when rehearsing the text.


Reader’s Theater is a fantastic way to create interest and enthusiasm in reading. We have begun working on four different plays.  
Students were excited to memorize their lines.
