My students in 1st through 3rd grade changed books each day. There were 2 reading trials implemented with each book. My fifth graders read 2 different poems each day, but with two trials for each one, just as the 1st-3rd grade group of students. Notes were taken each day that related to how the students read on each of the two trials. I will definitely be using Readers' Theater more often with my students. This created a lot of motivation and purpose for reading, whereas, with echo and choral, this was more difficult to do. Students really buy into Readers' Theater, especially because they are aware that their specific part is important to the rest of the group.
