Readers' Theatre Scripts

I need to preface this by saying I despise round-robin (popcorn) reading from a basal! Instead, I like to put together a levelled duotang of readers' theatre plays that we can pull out to practice reading fluency. These are some of the free plays I've successfully used with second and third grade students. I will be on the hunt this week to add to my collection for this year's group of fourth graders. In the past, my students have been motivated by using Garage Band to record their plays. Some kids even download the .mp3 file onto their devices to listen at home!
