Seventh Graders at Henderson Hammock Charter School practice reading and public speaking at a monthly
Reader’s Theater using Scholastic Scope magazine. This month, students went cross-curricular and learned about history, mythology, and character development with “The Spider’s Curse.” We explored character development and gratitude using the myth of Arachne. Students began doing Reader’s Theater in Ms. Petronio’s 6th grade Reading class and continue this fun reading activity in Ms. Ketchum’s 7th grade Language Arts class. Students love the chance to ham it up in front of their peers. Ms. Ketchum and Ms. Petronio love that students get excited about reading. Henderson Hammock has accepted the Reading Challenge and teachers and students are reaching their goals!
