Check with your supervisors, grant coordinators, or purchasing department for access to these funds. These funds are ideal for reading enrichment and we can help you finalize your expenditures by June 30.

If you don't have funds to utilize before June 30, we highly recommend you prepare an order form and submit it to your purchasing department on July 1 for next year's funds. You don't want to forget or run out of funding before getting these materials for your students! Time moves much too quickly and before you know it, it's gone and so is the money! So fill out one of our forms with the kits you want and attach it to your requisition and get it submitted early.

You can find some helpful grant verbiage regarding reader's theater at this link! Good luck! We hope you are successful, and if you are, please let us know so we can reward you.

Kick Off Summer With
a Reader's Theater Luau!

We love to share new, exciting ways for you to utilize reader's theater in the classroom or during out-of-school time programs, so here is a suggestion to help your students be fully engaged in a reader's theater experience. This themed activity can be used in the final weeks of the school year, during summer programs, or just keep it in mind for next year!

For a reader's theater luau, students can take turns in small groups performing reader's theater scripts for the rest of the class, while everyone enjoys tropical-themed snacks and costumes. You can have students make or bring leis to wear, depending on your students' ages and interests.

You can find a helpful guide for making paper flower leis at this link! Students should practice their scripts before the performances for a total of 3-4 readings so they gain all the benefits of Repeated Guided Oral Reading. You could even unite with other classes or grade levels for a larger school or program feast and celebration of the art of storytelling!
