This week, I’m doing a reader’s theatre for Book! Book! Book! with my second graders. This is aÂ cute, quick story with bright illustrations. The kids really get into it. The reader’s theatre script comes from the first edition of Read! Perform! Learn! It’s a good intro to reader’s theatre for my second graders, and I used it last year as well. A lot of explaination has to go into how to read the script and such, and the first reading is pretty painful until they start to “get it.” The first few reader’s theatres that the struggle through are worth it when they finally become confident are really get into their parts.
Next week is Halloween, which means The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Stellaluna!!!
I’m thinking about doing National Board CertificationÂ for Library Media. Next December, I’ll have my 3 years of experience needed to begin the process. I may do Take One! in the spring, which lets you do one portion of the certification process.
