Power Up For
Summer Reading Gain
Through Roleplay Reading
With Reader's Theater!

It's that time of year again to find the best ideas and materials to power up your summer school curriculum and avoid summer reading loss! Playbooks® Roleplay Reader Camp Reader's Theater™ Kits are just what you're looking for!

Research by the National Summer Learning Association shows that Repeated Guided Oral Reading (RGOR) is the only proven method of avoiding summer reading loss. Roleplay reading with multi-leveled reader's theater is an approved form of RGOR that can create summer reading gain for most students! With our specialized reader's theater materials, students of different ages read the same story aloud together and become guides for each other. Students can achieve tremendous growth with reader's theater .... a year's growth in reading skills in 10 weeks, with struggling readers gaining as much as two years!

Read more about the benefits of reader's theater in academic and/or out of school programs in this article published by AfterSchool Today magazine.

Teach Essential Test-Taking Skills
With Fun Script:
Help Students Conquer
End-of-Year Tests
with Confidence!

Make sure that your students will be fully prepared for End-of-Grade or end of the year testing with Questionella and the Fairy Tale of Multiple Choices. Test-taking success is about more than just knowing the material. Some students deal with serious nerves and other issues when facing tests. This clever reader's theater story is an entertaining way to help students internalize proven test-taking strategies that can be very beneficial in maximizing testing success.

Questionella and the Perfect Prince: A Fairy Tale
of Multiple Choices

Written by Reading Specialist and Teacher of the Year, Gregory Brown, this story presents a twist to the classic tale of Cinderella. The story provides a universal lesson to enhance test-taking skills and confidence, making it ideal for students across a broad range.... from Grades 4-12! Along with Questionella, your students will learn how to identify four main multiple choice test answer types, brought to life with funny character names, and put them together with information learned to select the correct answer!

Students get to learn and perform the "Multiple Choice Rap," which accompanies the book on CD, helping them to remember this creative test-taking strategy forever! View story details here.

Preserve the Arts with "STEAM" After School

As limited budgets see arts programs quickly disappearing from regular school curriculums, After School programs must step up and make sure students do not lose this important family of subjects by observing an "A" for Arts Education as part of the popular STEM acronym. Research shows that participation in and learning through the arts is associated with better outcomes in academics and helps children overcome disadvantaged backgrounds. After School is positioned to reach students of varying socioeconomic status and help them gain experiences in the arts that would otherwise be unlikely.

Students need to be exposed to a wide range of arts activities, including performing arts, to personalize their development to their own interests and personalities and find what will best help them excel overall. Performing arts is often neglected behind typical arts and crafts that staff may be more comfortable assigning. With some minimal, simple guidance, staff can be easily prepared to implement a powerful, ongoing performing arts program that nurtures reading fluency, confidence, creativity, motivation, empathy and more with roleplay reading through reader's theater. Playbooks® Roleplay Reader™ kits provide all the instruction necessary to carry out a highly effective and valuable performing arts program that is equally rooted in the reading enrichment category, ensuring it will be time well spent for efficiency and all-around growth.
