Easter Sunday falls on March 31, 2013, which is when the final installment of the five part miniseries The Bible concludes. But the history channel isn't the only place to see the life of Jesus. If you are looking for free resources for a program or classroom activity, consider staging a choral reading?
Choral readings are an effective way to practice oral language skills with a large group. Even shy or ESL readers will be able to participate and build confidence in their emerging skills. Practice gives authentic reasons for repeated reading to improve fluency and comprehension while choosing just the right delivery activates higher level thinking skills.
