One way to have fun while learning to read at the same time is through reading plays. First grade learns through what is called "reader's theatre." Through reader's theatre, students are encouraged to read smoothly with feeling - just like the character would. At this stage in our reading development, acting out the parts might be a little distracting. Instead, we focus on telling the story with our voices.
Below are listed some of the plays that we have used in class. As time allows, I would love to continue adding to our collection. Please feel free to use these scripts at home to practice reading fluency. Although some scripts have many parts, these scripts are often based on favorite children's stories in 1st grade. Many of the scripts only have a few parts, which would make reading with family members a breeze. Challenge your children to practice a play while you cook dinner, and then have a "dinner theatre" performance after eating!
