New Now I’m Reading Books! October 15, 2010

Posted by Nora in Uncategorized.

The next two books in the Now I’m Reading “readers theater” series have been released. The  plays are Jack and the Beanstalk and The Three Bears. Each book contains six little  books: One story book and five script books for the five roles in the play. The plays are perfect for beginning readers, but they are a blast to use with third, fourth and fifth graders too! They not only develop reading fluency, but they encourage reading with expression and voice. I am starting to think about writing plays for kids 10 years old and up. This format is creating great excitement with the teachers and students at my school. What a fun way to build reading skills and stamina!! Oh, and the other night we  performed the Now I’m Reading  Cinderella play as a family.  My fifth grader, Luke,  played the role of Cinderella and my second grader, Owen, played the role of the evil stepmother. It was hilarious!!
