Readers theater promotes literacy fluidity and improved comprehension of materials read. Teachers incorporating readers theater into curriculum lets students act out their readings. The physical movement and reading aloud engage multiple parts of the brain, creating new dendrites. A local kindergarten class I worked with chose a play to perform. Once settled on a story, they read aloud their lines and practiced. After practicing, the students did a performance for the class.
