A 5 page, 6 part reader's theatre script for the folk tale Jack and the Beanstalk. The script is written with primary students in mind and contains parts for High Emergent, Transitional and Fluent readers as follows:
o High Emergent (roughly DRA 6-8) Man, Giant
o Transitional (roughly DRA 10-12): Giant's Wife
o High Transitional (roughly DRA 14-18): Jack, Mother
o Fluent (roughly DRA 20+): Narrator
This allows children to work with classmates who may not be in their reading groups and makes for a nice change. It also allows fluent readers to model good reading habits and lets struggling readers participate in reading "meatier" text.
There are 7 copies of the script, a master plus 6 more which have the individual part highlighted. This allows the teacher to just hand out the scripts without needing any further prep work. If you need more copies or would like to combine/divide parts or only have access to a black and white photocopier, the master is provided.
Also includes full page, color images of each character, including a choice of images for the Narrator, which students can use to make hats or neck signs to identify their part to the audience.
Also available is a more comprehensive reading comprehension unit Jack and the Beanstalk: A primary literacy unit
, which includes the master of this reader's theatre script plus story mapping activities, a variety of questions (text, inference and personal connection) and song lyrics retelling the story.
