These read-aloud plays are perfect for a class divided into partners and small groups for simultaneous reading of the rows in turn. The advantages are that everyone has equal reading time, and a chance to play all characters.
Peer teaching and wanting to read each story over and over again happens naturally. The resultant social bonding and shared laughter strengthen emotional well-being and classroom friendships.
Teachers love the way the story plays only require an introductory demonstration - and then handing over the learning to the children.
