Reader's Theater Performance
Friday, March 6, 2020
On Friday of Read Across America Week (aka "Pajama Day" of Dr. Seuss Week), first graders performed "Why Do Mosquitos Buzz in People's Ears" for their fellow classmates.
Donning their handmade masks, students recited their lines to a rapt audience.
An educator's take on Reader's Theater:
Many popular fictional stories are put into script form. Reader's Theater is a reading strategy for newly fluent decoders and fluent readers. It is an opportunity to apply reading skills in a purposeful way. Reader's Theater helps to improve reading fluency (prosody and intonation) and reading comprehension (making meaning) through multiple readings.
The teacher selects a script and introduces it to a small group of students. The teacher allows students to browse the script and select a character. As the small group reads and rereads the script, students may select a different character. After a week or so, students may decide to perform the script for an audience (the whole class). If students choose to perform the play, they have the option to improvise, memorize the lines, and make simple props or costumes.
In addition to improving reading skills, Reader's Theater helps students gain confidence and build cooperative learning skills.

Cheremoya 2019 Summer Reading List
Long summer days are filled with fun and pilgrimages to the playground, but there is one “summer slide” we want our kids to avoid: statistics show that each summer students lose some of the academic ground they covered during the school year. One of the best ways to counteract this so-called “summer slide” is reading.
Here, you will find Cheremoya’s suggested summer reading with 28 book suggestions for students of all ages. Whether your child is reading alone, you read to them, or both, reading should be part of every student’s summer fun.
This past school year, all students participated in an author visit event supported by the Cheremoya Foundation’s Advanced Literacy Program. The kinder through second graders got to meet author Mac Barnett and illustrator Jon Klassen in March and received a signed copy of their book Circle. The third through sixth graders met Pseudonymous Bosch, author of The Unbelievable Oliver and the Four Jokers and received a signed copy of it.
Every Cheremoya student received a copy of the book Hello Universe by Erin Entrada Kelly, thanks to the Hollywood Unified Neighborhood Council and our book fairy godmothers, the Punk Rock Marthas. So, your child should already have two books from our reading list.
Additionally, each Cheremoya student received a library card from the Los Angeles Public Library (a “student success card”) at the end of the school year.
Have a wonderful, book-filled summer!
