Reader's Theater is a strategy for developing reading fluency. It involves children in oral reading through reading parts in scripts. Using this strategy, students do not need to memorize their part; they need only to reread it several times, thus developing their fluency skills.

  • A key difference between traditional theater and Reader's Theater is that Reader's Theater is not staged or acted out through physical movement.

  • The interpretation of the dramatic reading relies almost entirely on the actors' voices.

  • Students increase sight word vocabulary and decode words quickly and accurately.

  • Reader's Theater provides students with the opportunity for repeated readings which helps in word recognition. 

  • Students build a strong sight word base which helps their oral reading fluency. This makes reading less laborious and makes reading a more enjoyable experience.
