Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Reading the Story/ AKA Readers Theater

Teachers- do you do Readers Theater in your classrooms? Are you gearing up for next year?
How about you camp counselors out there? Drama camp?

If so, here's a terrific resource from one of my favorite blogs.

 Reader’s Theater puts the kid INTO the story, inhabiting his favorite hero, villain or sidekick. Words on a page literally come to life when real kids stand up to act out a scene.

That's from Tami Lewis Brown over at FROM THE MIXED UP FILES, a blog every writer/ reader/teacher of Middle Grade novels should bookmark right now.

Here's the link to Brown's post about Readers Theater:

And I posted a page with the Readers Theater script from GLORY BE.
Here it is, ready for your reading/ acting/ dramatic pleasure.
