Written with 10 speaking parts, the play also features optional parts for a band and choir of unlimited members. The band marches in a parade that a typical family comes to see on this special holiday to honor veterans. The choir sings the national anthem as well as additional songs at the conclusion of the play. With an announcer, parade assistants, and narrators, you are all set to celebrate this important day!

This is an original play written for use as readers’ theater, as a part of balanced literacy (Read-Aloud, Shared and Performance Reading, or Guided Reading), or for an actual play production. In readers’ theater or through one of the balanced literacy approaches to teaching reading, children are not expected to memorize their lines, yet the reading encourages strong oral skills. An added benefit is performing the play for other classes or parents while increasing social skills, cooperative learning, and creativity. Using plays in literacy-based classrooms promotes active listening for the performers, as well as the audience, and offers an engaging way to teach reading skills.

Although the play is written for students in grades 3-5, it can be adapted to other grade levels and for student abilities and interests. Additional students can share parts for choral reading or help with directing, prompting props/costumes/scenery/sound effects, programs, and invitations, Master of Ceremonies, or house staff (e.g., selling tickets, ushering, etc.).

Complete with a teaching guide with questions to use prior and at the completion of the performance, words to preview, tips to help with the performance, and extension activities, your students will have fun, build self-confidence, and increase in reading fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary development. In addition, there are engaging student-designed activities to broaden understanding of the characters, author’s purpose and view, word choice, key details and main ideas, the plot and setting and to strengthen creative/critical thinking, creative expression, research, and summarizing skills.
