This is a four-act Readers Theater interpretation of Amber Brown is Not a Crayon by Paula Danziger. The acts depict events that happen throughout the book. I have written it with up to thirty-one roles for students. When I use it, I divide students into groups with each group responsible for an act. If you have less than 31 students you can assign students multiple roles.
We’ve also included a character cluster worksheet for Amber as well as a Venn diagram to compare Amber and Justin. For students’ post performance reflection, we have included a scene summary form and a listener feedback form.
