Reader’s Theater

Wow!  This morning, students participated in their first Reader’s Theater of The Three Javelinas.  We will do a few of these throughout the year as a different way to participate in whole group reading.  I was SO PROUD of every single student – both as audience members and as performers.  They were fantastic.  Towards the spring, after we have done a few, they will become more like “real plays” instead of just a reader’s theater, so I will then invite parents to come in to see one.  This time, I did video tape all three groups, so I will plan on sharing the videos with you all.  I will be putting it on an online password protected page, so that parents only will receive access……

This afternoon students will take their second spelling test, and then continue to learn more about wolves.  We developed questions yesterday for different wolf topics and we have a lot of great questions to research.  The three main topic groups are:  communication, characteristics and habitat/survival.

Have a great weekend!
