This delightful holiday reader's theater script is a dramatization of the German Legend of the Christmas spiders. With roles for 15+ it is most suitable for elementary grade level students. It is a sample script of my work (my other readers theater scripts are more comprehensive.) This product is FREE as my gift to you. Enjoy!

A teacher could assign this reader's theater script to students who are distance learning. #DistanceLearningTPT

Based on the beloved folk tale, students will:

  • Develop beginning characterization through their voices
  • Focus on their reading, especially in a play format
  • Ftrengthen their skills in vocal variety and inflection
  • Perform for peers in a non-threatening manner

HOW DO I USE THIS IN MY CLASSROOM? A teacher can use it when studying the German culture in social studies, in reading class to strengthen skills, language arts for a comparison/contrast in literature and as a celebration to culminate the end of the semester.

This product comes with:

  • Letter to teacher
  • Ten page script with roles for 15+ students
