This bundle of Reader's Theater for the Middle Grades is the perfect tool to share with your students to enhance both fluency and reading comprehension.
Each CCSS based literature passage is
-8+ pages long and includes 12-13 characters with a clear plot structure and provides readers with the chance to get lost in the realistic world of the various character
-All passages can be utilized independently of the others.
Great discussion will come from both the Reader Response questions that follow each of the selections, as well as in determining the central theme.
Your students will come away from reading each passage reflecting on how they would respond if placed in the same situations as the characters in the three different texts.
Use this bundle in a variety of ways:
1) If you teach multiple classes, have each group perform the same passage for the other classes.
2) If you teach three different classes, have each class perform a different reader's theater
3) Read each passage in your own creative way with your students.
Your students will thank you for sharing this with them and be asking you for more.
