This Reader's Theater was written for a small group of 4 students. It is to help explain what comets, meteors, and asteroids are. In the script, Brian is supposed to have written a report about Comets, Meteors, and Asteroids but he hasn’t been working on it. He thinks that all of them are space rocks. His friends help him out and explain the differences between them.
I write small group reader's theaters so they will work better in centers and to avoid having long wait times between student's lines. Wait time is not reading time and often turns into off task behavior time. Small group reader's theater helps to get students reading more and encourages even reluctant readers to practice fluency.
My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone and I hope that your students enjoy this script as much as mine did. I love tying in multiple subjects with reading and have done so. If you like this script please check out some of my others. Most of my scripts are black and white so that they can be photo copied easier for your students. Please let me know what you think.
