A fun lesson plan that offers your students a chance to use imaginative play as a way to achieve vocal and physical awareness. Adapted from a classic tale this simple story is a favorite among Pre-k through 4th grade students who love the chance to bring the story to life using funny voices and expressions. It is a simple but FUN script with just four characters, one narrator and requires no sets, props or materials, just the script included in the plan. You'll find yourself using it year after year!
There are three ways the story can be done or how it can progress…
*The teacher can say all the lines and the students just act it out.
*The teacher can narrate and have the student repeat the lines.
*The teacher can just be the narrator and the students say the lines.
