Five for Friday May 13, 2016

Thanks, Doodle Bugs Teaching for another great Five for Friday!

 So last week we finished our Houghton Mifflin Curriculum for the year.

Now comes the real fun!

Our 2 hour block of reading is filled with fun ways to apply our amazing reading skills.

First up… Reader’s Theater! 

Oh my gosh, did they have fun!

First, I read the books that the Reader’s Theaters were adopted from.

Then I highlighted the parts on each script and distributed to students.

They practiced.

 And practiced a little more…

And performed! What joy!

Choose from these Reader’s Theaters:

 Another way my students applied their reading skills this week was a solid 45 minutes of reading BIG Books! 

Those BIG Books that were off limits all year long were now available for everyone to lie down on the carpet and READ! OMG! 

I heard, “Really??”


They could barely stand it.

And this is why I make it so special and wait for the end of the year…
