Looking for a fun and engaging way to practice fluency and phonics skills with your kindergarten and first grade students? Look no further than this set of decodable text partner plays! These kid-friendly reader’s theater scripts are the perfect addition to your center time, early finishers, or teacher table. Simply print and go to provide your students with a phonics-based practice that they’re sure to enjoy. With these partner plays at your fingertips, phonics skill practice has never been so fun!
These partner plays consist of two pages, making them the ideal length for kindergarten and first grade students. To make things even easier for you, words for blending practice and high-frequency words are listed. Story words (those words that are decodable) are also listed with a picture clue. This feature allows you to confirm that your students will be able to read and comprehend each word in the script. That way, we can avoid guessing and follow the best Science of Reading practices.
Each Partner Play Includes:
- Title Page
- Characters in the story
- Blending practice
- High-frequency words and mapping page
- Student response page (optional)
- Folder labels
- Character sticks
- Character headband
In every play, you’ll find a header section page that outlines important details such as the title of the play, the characters, and the setting, blending practice, and high-frequency words. Additionally, the high-frequency words are on the back of the file folder. This will give students the chance to see them again and orthographically map these words. An optional student response page or exit ticket is also included.
