From the Paper:

"Day 5. Readers Theater! Today students have the opportunity to perform for other classes or parents. Each student is given a phrase or character to read, has the opportunity to practice with a tutor and together as a class. Students will concentrate on having fun with the phrase and using fluency and intonation to deliver a lively presentation. An oral presentation for family and friends will create a pleasurable completion to the weeks learning and can be used to promote the use of these skills at home. The teacher can provide handouts for implementing the five strategies at home."
