These reproducible, read-aloud plays combine fun with phonics and fluency practice for the perfect formula to help build reading confidence. Designed to reinforce key phonics skills—including short vowels, long vowels, r-controlled vowels, silent e, and consonant blends and digraphs—the plays offer engaging plots that invite repeated readings and give children practice in decoding words and reading with speed, automaticity, and expression. They also boost comprehension, vocabulary, and listening skills. Great for Reader’s Theater!
You might copy the play onto a transparency for use on an overhead projector, or write the text on chart paper. This way, you can track the print when you first read the text with the group. (You can also use the text on the chart in a phonics mini-lesson with the class.)
