    Reader's Theatre
    By Rebecca

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I do Reader's Theatre in my classroom but not as a center. Students get a script on Monday. They practice all week and they "perform" it on Friday. In Reader's Theatre there are no props or costumes. They just stand with their script in the front of the room and read. You might have some stands (like music stands) for them to put their scripts on but it isn't necessary.

    I do have a Puppet Theatre for a center. I have a folding stage that has a curtain. It sits on a table and the students stand behind it. I have lots of puppets, and I make up my own scripts to go along with our stories. They LOVE this center!

    There are some sites online that have scripts. Lisa Blau is one site that is really good. I think it is If not, do a search for it.

    Hope this helps. If you have any questions, I will try to answer them.
