Come join me in the Shire! In this five week class, students will read five adaptations from J.R.R. Tolkien's thrilling novel, The Hobbit. No rules, make-up or sets, reader's theatre is about the joy of reading aloud with others.

Class experience

US Grade 3 - 6
Reader's Theatre is cooperative, and provides opportunities to learn with support.  It's creative and encourages language experimentation and risk-taking.  It provides natural occasions for practice and enables children to build a repertoire of reading strategies with a purpose.  
Apart from the fun aspect, there are many opportunities for the emergent reader to become comfortable with reading a script.  
The children will have fun listening to each other, reading together and celebrating their accomplishments.
Pacing, inflection, expression and fluency will all be practiced. 
Through open discussion, students will learn thinking out of the box, improvisation and will use their imagination!
What better way to encourage reading then to have some fun with an adventure tale like The Hobbit!  I have a Bachelor's Degree with a Major in Drama and a Minor in English.  
I have performed and toured with a cast where we performed across Alberta, Canada - engaging young students and bringing with us a love of drama!
I am a homeschool mom myself and I have two children with special learning needs, including Aspergers and NVLD.  I guide my teaching to each child's unique needs and will support and encourage so everyone feels comfortable and accepted.
