Overview

This book allows students to bring the energy of their everyday lives into the classroom via sports-based readers theatre and writing activities.

Team sports like football, baseball, basketball, hockey, and soccer. Individual athletic pursuits, such as skating, gymnastics, track, BMX, and skateboarding. These are the activities that hold a powerful and universal appeal for kids.

Read and Write Sports: Readers Theatre and Writing Activities for Grades 3–8 makes students forget they're learning by delivering the action and emotion of their favorite pursuits as they participate in readers theatre activities and writing exercises such as composing an action-reaction poem for each sport. These activities allow students to draw from their personal experience and bring their extracurricular activities into the classroom by writing a narrative scene for different sports throughout the school year. Each chapter provides "filled-out" examples to model the pre-writing process, making it easy for students to see how others think before they write.


  • Presents ten original readers theater scripts about sports for children in elementary and middle school
  • Provides a sample "GO Chart" with each writing exercise so students have an example to follow
  • Includes a word search and a crossword puzzle with each of the ten sports, providing valuable spelling and vocabulary activities
  • Contains appendixes with helpful charts and black line masters for instructors
