The classic tale of Chicken Little (or Henny Penny) is retold as a Readers' Theater for beginning readers. This script is perfect for kindergarten and first grade readers! The repetitive text and use of sight words make it easy to read. This Readers' Theater is the perfect supplement to a unit about farm animals or trickster tales. It works great for shared reading or as a follow-up for guided reading.
This Readers' Theater script includes 7 parts:
• Chicken Little
• Henny Penny
• Ducky Lucky
• Goosey Loosey
• Turkey Lurkey
• Foxy Loxy
Each part is color-coded on the script, making it easier for early readers to follow along and identify their parts. The font is selected specifically for beginning readers: easy-to-read with plenty of space between words. If you have fewer than 7 readers, it works well to allow some children to have two of the smaller roles (all but the narrator or Chicken Little.)
Also included are crowns for each of the characters (with a choice of a boy or girl for the narrator.) Alternately, there are small oval cards for each character that teachers may use instead.
To use these scripts for partner reading or center work, bind them in a pocket folder and add the included title labels.
All materials (scripts, crowns, character cards, and title labels) are included in both full color and in black-and-white.
