The scripts in this pack were written for 3 - 5 students. Each script is an adaptation of one of Aesop's fables. Aesop's tales are a great way to teach students how to look for lessons or morals! I use all of my Reader's Theaters to help students improve their fluency. My students, especially the ones struggling to read, still require motivation to improve and that is where Reader's Theater comes in.
You can buy 8 of these scripts in this pack for $10 or pay $2 a piece for them. Buying this pack will save you $6. The fables in this pack are: An Old Man Meets Death - The Four Oxen and the Lion - The Man, the Boy, and the Donkey - The Owl and the Grasshopper - The Peacock and the Crane - The Peacock's Tail - The Rooster and the Fox - and The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse. My 3rd grade group needed some extra help with vocabulary words which is why I do not list this below 4th grade.
My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone and I hope that you will enjoy this small group Reader's Theater. As I have said before, small groups are better because students aren't waiting as long to do their part so they get more practice in and spend less time off task. My ESL students find these scripts to be their favorite part of our lesson time. Please let me know what you think of this one. Most of my scripts are black and white to make it easier to photocopy. If you like this book of Aesop's fables there are two other books. Let me know how things go. Thank you.
