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.
