    I usually don't have the kids work on one RT at a time due to level... usually reader's theater time in my classroom would look like:

    groups around the room (diff. # in each group) sitting in circles and reading their parts. When they finish it, they start right over again. The very hardest thing I've found is getting everyone to follow along when they aren't speaking. Usually, though, the rest of the group holds them accountable.

    I like for them to be in small groups, and I really like twos because of my learning objective: multiple re-readings for fluency. The goal would be to keep them actually reading for a large percentage of the time.

    So if I ever do a full class reader's theater (sometimes we'll do this for a performance or a special occassion or something) then I double up a lot of kids on every part so that many people are reading. In that case, I might put together small groups that have one of everyone in them or we just practice whole group.
