Two weeks in a row without Five for Fraturday?! What is the world coming to? You must feel so sad not to know five things that happened during my week.
I am out of town.
I’ll tell you all about it in this coming week’s Five for Fraturday because I plan on being prepared and having all my ducks in a row and I am determined to link up with Kacey.
In the meantime, I am also trying to think and prep for this coming week at school and I am so excited to switch out the Fall plays for the Holiday plays! If I have to hear I see a Spider! one more time, I might just lose it.
Reader’s Theater is an absolute favorite in my class and while I might get tired of hearing the same play over and over and over again, my kids don’t. It’s a phenomenon.
While reading some blogs this morning, I happened upon Mandy’s post over at The Primary Peach and she has some great links for FREE Reader’s Theater! They are more for a large group of students (not partners) but they look like a lot of fun, and most are based off of children’s read aloud books.
I’m already checking some out — I feel like my kids would be experts because of all the practice we get with my Partner Plays.
In the meantime, I’m giving away my Reader’s Theater Holiday Bundle pack over on my Facebook page . . . so get on over there and enter for your chance to win one!
Have a happy Sunday!
I was certainly missing your Five for Fraturday! Reading your blog makes me think that I could MAYBE handle teaching first if I had to. If I ever get moved to first grade, I'll be shopping and shopping and shopping in your store. Have a great week.
Laughter and Consistency
I started using your Reader's Theater this year. I'm a 1st grade teacher and I've taught for a long, long time. I love having my students present various "stuff" through the year so they get practice being in front of an audience and speaking. When I found your theaters, I thought they would be a great fit for me and my expectations. I have been using the advanced theater for a few months now…but with all my kids. It has been amazing. The great readers are rocking the house down and the struggling readers are working SUPER hard to be amazing too. Everyone begs me, no joke, begs me, "Can I please do a Milo and Murphie???" or "Can we please, please, please present one of the plays????" It is wonderful. Thank you for making these humorous plays that my students adore.
