When young children have mastered the alphabet letter names and know more than half of the letter sounds, hooray! But with that sigh of relief comes the reteaching and reteaching of those pesky vowels!
The systematic teaching of all phonological awareness skills is imperative to ensure a students’ future reading success. Daily, intentional instruction of, and more importantly, the “playing with" individual sounds in a meaningful way will build cognitive clarity as students experience how sounds work together to form words.
A child’s future reading success is directly linked to his/her understanding of phonological awareness skills. Consequently, daily intentional, strategic teaching of those skills must exist in the kindergarten classroom. The best way to teach these skills? Well the play way of course!
Using Reader's Theater in kindergarten is not only great fun, but it is the perfect way to build reading confidence, fluency, and developed comprehension skills. This week students were working hard in their reading groups to read, practice, refine, and then perform!
These scripts are perfect for benchmark kindergarten readers! The scripts are engaging as they are based on familiar folktales.
You can purchase each of these theaters separately, or as a bundle! You kids will love them!
