More Readers Theatre for Beginning Readers
Barchers, Suzanne; Pfeffinger, Charla
Teacher Ideas Press
After more than a decade in print, "Readers Theatre for Beginning Readers" continues to outsell all comparable books on Readers Theatre. "More RTBR" capitalizes on both the popularity of "Readers Theatre for Beginning Readers" and the emphasis on fluency due to the recommendations of the National Reading Panel. Further, the fact that many classrooms now have ESL students or struggling readers provides a demand for more easy scripts. The introduction includes a brief overview of how to get started with Readers Theatre, with particular attention to the needs of young students. Thirty new scripts are organized into 3 sections with ten scripts each for grades one, two, and three as analyzed by the Flesch Kincaid readability formula. As with RTBR, each script includes suggestions for props, presentation, and the like. For the first section, more choral and/or group responses is included with particular emphasis on rhyme and repetition.
