A New Pet is part of a series of short, two-page scripts for English as a Foreign Language (EFL) students in grades 3-5. There are four characters in the script but it can easily be adjusted for 3-6 characters. The script utilizes basic vocabulary commonly learned in early EFL classrooms.
Plays are a fun and engaging way for EFL students to reinforce vocabulary, practice sentence structure, and enrich their oral expression in English.
Students can enhance their plays by making scenery. My students had a great time creating a PowerPoint presentation with a house scene and a park scene to accompany this play.
