Reader's Theater Skype Presentations

For the past couple of weeks, our class has been practicing "Reptile News" -- a reader's theater script.  This script fit in with our study of animal life cycles in science.  We were broken into groups of 3 or 4 as there were 4 roles -- Reporter 1, Reporter 2, Mr. (Ms.) Turtle and Mr. (Ms.) Rattlesnake. 

Then on Monday, every group performed for the class.  Two of the groups were chosen to participate in our Skype presentations on Tuesday morning.  We connected with Ms. Ariss', Ms. Holden's, Ms. Bettess', Ms. Brimacombe's and Ms. Dohn's classes to share our work.  Our two groups presented first.  Then we got to hear Ms. Holden's class do "Anansi the Spider", which is an African folktale.  We also heard two of Ms. Dohn's groups.  They did "Four Little Pigs" and "Click, Clack, Moo".  We were excited about the "Click, Clack, Moo" performance because we had read that book earlier in the year and watched the video too!

Here are a couple of pictures of the Skype call...

After listening to the performances, we went to the computer lab so that we could blog about them.  You can find our blog posts at Braybrook's Bloggers.  We'd love if you commented on them!

We were wondering...

Have you done reader's theater performances before?
Have you worked with other classes through Skype?
