Carol Montgomery's Story


As a classroom teacher I was ecstatic to learn about Readers Theater. But, I struggled to find any trustworthy Readers Theater scripts to use with my students.  It seemed like the plays were too long, too hard, or inappropriate.  So, as a master's project I wrote a collection of Readers Theater scripts.  (My professor said I should publish them.)

Years later, as a drama club teacher for about 30 homeschooled students, I STILL couldn't find enough scripts.  I wrote more because there was no Script Buffet Club(TM).

Now, I've created that which I always wished I had as a teacher:  a growing buffet of trustworthy Readers Theater scripts based on the needs of real teachers.

 Teacher Praise 


 Here's what one of the teachers in our caring community shared about the Script Buffet Club(TM) a few years ago:

"Readers Theater All Year" is the most comprehensive collection of Readers Theater scripts and resources I have found on the internet!  The site is so well organized and user-friendly.  Scripts are organized by topic and subject and have readability levels and character information listed.  Many of the scripts incorporate social studies and science content which works well with cross-curricular lessons.

As an elementary school teacher, I use Readers Theater as a center activity during my reading block.  I color code the scripts by readability level.  Students select an appropriate script from the center and work within their groups of two or three to practice and then perform their play.  I have noticed my more reluctant readers becoming excited and encouraged about reading.  My fluency scores have soared by implementing Readers Theater in my classroom each year!  It has been a true blessing!

I recently joined the Script Buffet Club so now I have unlimited access to even more scripts and resources!  I'm also notified when new scripts are posted!  Thank you, Carol, for your leadership and vision for making Readers Theater so accessible for teachers and parents.

Here's another testimony from a loyal Script Buffet Club(TM) member:

...Thanks again for your help and your site.  The teacher I was speaking with today about you and your site was amazed at what you do and stood there listening with her jaw dropped!

And, here are a couple of testimonies from homeschooling mothers:

I am so blessed to have found Carol and her Readers Theater script program.  When I took on teaching my Performing Arts class, I had lots of questions and much anxiety over it.  Carol has mentored me all the way through the class.  She has helped me so much, besides offering a wide selection of good quality and wholesome scripts to choose from.  I am so thankful to her for all of her expertise, encouragements, and counsel that she has given me!  I am now a fan of Readers Theater and have confidence to teach more classes.  Thank you, Carol!

...We did Squanto's Squash for the family on Thanksgiving and [my sons] participated and loved it.  I am so excited about making this a major part of homeschooling.  What a great way to learn!

Readers Theater All Year's Story (from Carol)


When I quietly launched Readers Theater All Year's Script Buffet Club in 2011 we gave members access to about 30 scripts for $4.23 a month or $38.23 a year.  And, teachers joined because they recognized the power of Readers Theater in building character, confidence, comprehension, fluency, and life-long skills.

Our first member taught eight challenging high school students. She knew two of her students were in a gang, but suspected two more were also in a gang.  Readers Theater proved to be a wonderful tool to engage them and help them learn.  And, who knows how Readers Theater helped build positive character in them?

Now we serve countless teachers and students around the globe with our free Readers Theater scripts and helpful information because we know the power of Readers Theater.

Readers Theater is more than an activity.  It's a tool to build character and life skills:  reading, writing, listening, thinking, speaking, group skills, and more.

Our Readers Theater Script Buffet Club(TM) serves exclusive, trustworthy scripts in a caring community to simplify your searches and help make lesson planning EASY. 

Teachers have purchased individual scripts in our TpT Store, but you won't have to do that as a paying member.  You will have access to ALL the scripts  24/7.

Plus, you'll know that your membership helps keep Readers Theater All Year online and growing.  So far, I (Carol) have not received a salary.  The members of the Script Buffet Club(TM) have kept Readers Theater All Year online.  




You help create a win/win/win/win/win by joining our caring community of teachers who are paying members in the Script Buffet Club(TM):

+  You win because you'll have 24/7 access to a system of building leaders and creators with cross-curricular, trustworthy Readers Theater scripts.


+  Your students win because they will be able to build confidence, fluency, comprehension, knowledge, and a variety of life skills with regular Readers Theater.


+  Your parents win because their children will grow in skills and character.


+  Your school, community, and nation wins because students who are motivated and equipped make better citizens.


+  And, Readers Theater All Year wins because we can't change the world without being part of your teams.


Thank you for trusting us.  It's an honor to serve you.

Cheering you on,

Carol Montgomery

Praise from Teachers

...Keep doing what you are doing.  There are not enough quality scripts available for children and teens.  So many are inappropriate from a parent's perspective.  As a teacher I want to also build character and integrity while I teach a subject.  Why can't drama build up, inspire and be thought provoking?...Anyway, keep doing what you're doing...we need all the help we can get!
Jen H., Drama teacher

> ...I have been teaching for 35 years. RT has been part of my education journey for the majority of that time. Initially my experience with it was as a performance genre in the Drama Curriculum. Now I use it across the curriculum - a wonderful high motivation strategy in the language program - particularly reading - and so much more as you would know. I was drawn to your 'community' by the idea of leadership... I think what you're doing is wonderful..."
Graham B. Former primary teacher (now a Visual Art and Drama specialist)

Readers Theater All Year is the most comprehensive collection of Readers Theater scripts and resources I have found on the internet!...Thank you Carol for your leadership and vision and for making Readers Theater so accessible for teachers and parents.
Daniel Fiore, Elementary teacher/author What They Have Taught Me

I found the free readers theater online scripts, teaching tips, and curriculum teleseminars at Readers Theater All Year very inspirational to me. I used the Twelve Days of Christmas...Vacation script in my ESOL classes before Christmas break and my students all enjoyed it..

> our script "The Earth Day Hen and Friends" I've used this! The kids love it. Thank you for sharing...It's just right for all levels in the class...Your free scripts are wonderful!...They learn so much from drama and reader's theatre...I see the shy ones gain confidence as they read. Fluency and prosody increases with reader's theatre...
