Teachers have often used readers theater to help improve reading fluency – now you can improve fluency AND work on reading comprehension. The script in this resource includes information about what different animals do in winter. I included a variety of response sheets related to the text, as well as a planning sheet and themed paper for writing. Once students are familiar with the text, they can each choose parts and share what they have learned with others! There are enough parts for 10 different animals and 2 narrators. (You can always choose to have one person read both the narrator parts.) Do a little rehearsing and you’re ready to perform for an audience!

This resource includes two files:
- Readers Theater script with up to 10 parts: one copy not highlighted; other copies highlighted to show each part and clipart and titles for headbands or full page signs for each part
- response sheets: pre-reading brainstorming sheet, writing planning sheet/graphic organizer and themed paper (regular lines and handwriting lines), True/False sort activity, single animal fact sheet

Please take a look at the preview to see what is included.

NOTE: The page count in this resource reflects the multiple copies of the script - one highlighted version for each part, and one non-highlighted copy
