Tip Details

Writing Read-Aloud Plays: Once students are comfortable practicing and performing a couple of the read-aloud plays, encourage them to write their own in small groups with problems and solutions you provide them based on the standards and topics you are studying such as, “A boy has trouble with his math word problem homework. His friends help him.” Or, “The firehouse in the community needs a new firetruck. The school helps them get the money.” Or, “Citizens in a city have stopped voting in local elections. Kids show them why they need to vote.” etc.
