The high frequency word lists contain the words found in children's reading books in order of the frequency in which they occur. If students were to learn just the words contained on the very first list (words 1 to 100), they will have learned half of all the words they will come across in children's reading materials! They are especially good lists for ELL and ELD students and are great to draw from for spelling development in general.

Readers Theater

To access a particular script, simply click on its title in the list. You can print the scripts out
just as you see them, or, if you wish to modify them in any way (font type, size, line spacing, etc.) you can
do a "Select All" (or simply drag through all the text from top to bottom to select it) and Copy it to your
clipboard. Then Paste it into an open page of your favorite word processor, manipulate the text to suite
your needs (larger print for primaries???) and print!
You may opt to download the scripts as pdf files. Just click the pdf link next to the script title/link. Another possible solution, which I originally had in mind, was to simply print out the desired material
and blow it up on the workroom copy machine for making multiple printouts.
