Reader's Theater

Reader's Theater was developed many years ago, as a convenient and effective way to present literary works in dramatic form. Since the story text on the back of Kamishibai cards is already in dialogue form, it can be used as a script. Photocopy the text and highlight different parts, such as the narratorand specific characters, for the students assigned to read them. Another student can hold the cards, moving the card in the order of the story and displaying illustrations to the audience.
