December 2017 - 2nd Grade Readers Theatre
Each school year before winter break Ms. Moultrie provides an opportunity for her 2nd Grade students to show off their reading skills to an audience of parents. Students are given a "script" and reading parts are divided amongst the students. Lines are not memorized. The students are encouraged to read from the script while focusing on reading the text with expressive voices. The students find it to be fun and it brings the text alive making comprehending the story more meaningful.
