Product Description
Allusion Partner Plays: These five partner plays are intended to be used as fluency-building activities that students can read with a partner. The added bonus with THIS set is that all of the scripts contain multiple allusions (references to fairy tales, classic stories, myths, and famous people).

After reading each script, students answer the allusion questions that accompany that particular script. (I know that some students may not be able to recognize all of the allusions made in these scripts, especially if they are second language learners. Therefore, I do not grade this assignment. Instead, I use this as more of a "challenge opportunity" for students to challenge themselves to see how many they can answer. Another option may be to complete the worksheet together with a teacher.)

These scripts require minimal teacher support, thereby allowing teachers to work with other small groups. For teachers who implement reading centers, these plays are perfect.

This set includes these five independent scripts:
-Helping Grandma (including allusions to Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs, Hercules, and Betty Crocker)
-The Bribe (including allusions to Michael Jordan, The Three Little Pigs, Pinocchio, and Achilles' heel)
-Hannah's Headache (including allusions to Old MacDonald Had a Farm, Goldilocks, and Old Mother Hubbard)
-Bella's Bad Day (including allusions to Pandora's box, The Itsy Bitsy Spider, the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz, and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, )
-A Conversation with Grandpa (including allusions to Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood, and Humpty Dumpty)
