All About Readers Theater - by Guest Blogger SEAN!

Hello, my name is Sean, and for those who don't know about Readers Theater, I'm going to teach you. Readers Theater is where you don't act the play, you read the different parts of the story. We're reading Snowflake Bentley. One of my parts I read, he (Willie Bentley) said snowflakes were as beautiful as butterflies or apple blossoms. He studied the icy crystals. Willie decided he must find a way to save snowflakes so others could see. He found hundreds of snowflakes - sometimes more like 458, some times even more like 900,000,000, and some times even more!

We're going to read another book called The Great Kapok Tree, and I think we're going to do more Readers Theater. I love it even better than math. And we're going to read The Great Kapok Tree today and I'm really excited to do it.

Well, guys, that's all for now. Subscribe now!

900,000,000 snowflakes-- WOW-- that is a lot of snowflakes. Reader's theater sounds so fun-- I used to do this with friends before moving to Ann Arbor. Your blog post reminds me of how much fun that was. Thanks, great job!

Hello Sean,

You are a natural-born teacher! You taught us some very cool things about Readers Theater. I was especially happy to read, from SNOWFLAKE BENTLEY, about snowflakes being "as beautiful as butterflies or apple blossoms." Your writing voice sure does come through in your blog post. Hooray for Readers Theater and you!

Happy Valentine's weekend!

Thanks for teaching about Readers Theater. I feel like I know much more about it now. It sounds like a fun way to enjoy stories as a class. The book you described, Snowflake Bentley, sounds very interesting. And I agree, snowflakes can be as beautiful as butterflies. I hope you enjoy reading the Great Kapok Tree!
