Davis Elementary 2nd grade Reader’s Theatre
Mrs. Christy Vaughn, 2nd grade ELA/Reading teacher at Davis Elementary, collaborates regularly with the media specialist, Mrs. Wendy Wilburn, to teach reading and offer extra enrichment to her students. Over the last few weeks, Mrs. Wilburn’s groups have been working on a reader’s theatre production. The students practiced their script regularly, and they got to use their terrific art skills to decorate a background. They also used the computers to make their nametags using Microsoft WordArt. When asked about the presentation, Mrs. Wilburn said, “The whole purpose and goal of this reader’s theatre presentation was to get the students excited about reading and to teach them how to read with expression. All of the groups did an outstanding job, and they were all so excited about reading. To me, the love of reading is one of the best gifts a child can receive.”
