Here is a short excerpt from Respect Yourself and Others Reader's Theatre Script:
Reader 1 – Name calling hurts.
Reader 2 – When someone calls me a mean name, I feel bad about myself.
Reader 3 – Do you like for people to call you mean names?
Reader 4 – I don’t care.
ALL – Yes you do!
Reader 1 – Always treat other people the way you would like to be treated.
Reader 2 – That’s how you get along.
Reader 3 – Don’t put yourself down either.
Reader 4 – The most important things you say are the things you say to yourself.
Suggested Use: Print four copies of each script onto cardstock (for durability over time). Place each script into a plastic sleeve, then place the scripts into a binder with dividers for each topic. Now they easily accessible from year to year! Use the scripts at the beginning of the year when you're teaching rules and procedures, and revisit the scripts when a situation calls for a particular topic. Give students a chance to turn and talk about the subject, and express their thoughts aloud.
