Please see Preview for a better look...
Included are 28 child parts in this Reader’s Theatre Presentation
-The parts tell the audience the traditions of their country from the point of view of a child.
-Each country featured has two child parts.
-Hanukkah and Kwanzaa parts are also featured as part of the presentation.
The colorful pictures of the characters should be used on the front page of your reader’s theatre page. I put the play part on one side of a piece of construction paper and the character on the other side. The audience should see the characters. (another idea would be to turn the characters into puppets).
The two children will read their parts and then you move on to the next two readers, etc… until all the children have read their parts.
-Lyrics to It’s A Small World can be performed as part of the program.
-An invitation to the Reader’s Theatre presentation
-A Christmas Around the World mini book where students can write down information about the different countries
-A page where students can write 3 different traditions or customs that they celebrate

This packet will be tons of fun for you and your students!
