Students not only improve their language skills but also deepen their understanding of various subjects across both grade levels. Reader's Theater sparks enthusiasm for learning and fosters a sense of community where every student contributes and learns from one another, regardless of their grade level."

– California Teacher

  • Boost decoding and word recognition skills.
  • Identify character traits and explore voice, mood,
    and feeling to dramatically express character traits.
