Language Theatre Books




Target a variety of skills simultaneously in a mixed group! This innovative program was developed by an SLP seeking an easy and creative way to target multiple language skills simultaneously in a group setting. Thus the Language Theatre Books were created! This set includes 6 books of scripts focusing on Synonyms, Antonyms, Context Clues, Idioms, Attributes, & Inferencing. Each book has 10 matching plays and pagination throughout. The only variation is each book will feature unique script lines focusing on that student's language target. Mix and match any combination of scripts. Ages 9-15 years. Made in the USA.

These books are motivating, effective, and fun!

Program Directions

  1. Each book targets a specific language skill.
  2. Students select the book focusing on their respective skill.
  3. Each student opens his or her book to the same page. "In The Mood For Food" play starting on page 98 in this example.
  4. Page 98 will feature the same theme ("In The Mood For Food") in all 6 books, while their script lines will be unique focusing on their language target.
  5. Students take turns reading aloud their unique lines, focusing on their target skill, they are performing together in the same humorous play.

For example, if your student Ryan is working on synonyms, Sally on idioms, and Logan on context clues, give each of them the book focusing on their respective language skill. Next, ask them to find the play "In The Mood For Food" in their books. While Ryan, Sally, and Logan all have the same play about their favorite foods in each of their books, their scripts lines are different from each other so they can practice their specific target language. As students take turns reading aloud their own lines, they are performing in the same humorous play together. Group therapy has never been more fun!
