Students in Mrs. Campbell’s and Mrs. Cecere’s classes performed their Reader’s Theatre skits for family and friends on Friday.
Reader’s Theater is “theatre of the imagination”. It involves children in understanding their world, reading aloud, performing with a purpose, and bringing enjoyment to both themselves and their audience. Reader’s Theater provides children with the opportunity to improve their reading fluency and expression.
The children spent time preparing and practicing for their performances. As they prepared, the students discussed different story plots, characters, setting, and the importance of a well developed beginning, middle and end.
We certainly have some budding actors and actresses in our midst! -cg
