Eric Herman shares with us a short video of a Reader's Theatre with his elementary students. The stories were developed from the script Nice to Meet You.
(I highly suggest watching the video if for nothing else than to enjoy the class' humorous acting and superb use of props.)
One thing that pops out at me is how well his students are understanding the stories. It's obvious they've heard/read them as they are very responsive to the language being read. The story is also projected on the overhead.
Acting out the story in this way, Reader's Theatre style, is a great way to get more auditory CI flowing into your students ears in an enjoyable way. This is a culminating event, after many minutes, if not hours, of storyasking, reading, etc. The students's sense...
