Readers' Theatre stories are theatrical, joyously entertaining and funny. Ellie Hallett’s unique take-it-in-turn format, developed and trialled with great success in her own classrooms, combine expressive oral reading, active listening, visualisation, peer teaching and vocabulary building.
The take-it-in-turn format of these stories achieves top-level learning through its alternating reading/listening structure and because of the emotionally rich action-packed immediacy of the writing.
Reading with expression happens. Learning new words and remembering them happens. Struggling readers no longer struggle because the excitement of the story is impossible to resist. They want to read. Capable and advanced readers will add their own creative theatrical flourishes that take them into the realms of the extraordinary. The involvement dial for everyone can be turned to maximum.
'Let's do it again' happens automatically. With fifteen graded titles, a year’s worth of fun awaits.
And all the teacher needs to do is energetically model the first part of the story in its introduction while children follow on their own copies, and at the end of the lesson have an answer ready when children beg to take their book home to read with Mum, Dad, and others.
