Do you teach a unit on folk tales and fairy tales each year? Are you looking for some easy-to-read scripts for emergent readers? These familiar folk tale/fairy tale scripts are perfect for a foray into the magical world of Reader's Theater! I made this set because many of the scripts that I came across online were too hard for my beginning readers. These scripts are simple and easy for children reading on a first grade reading level. They are also short-most are 2-3 pages long.
Here are the fairy tales included in this bundle:
1.) The Little Red Hen (6 parts)
2.) The 3 Billy Goats Gruff (5 parts)
3.) The City Mouse & The Country Mouse (4 parts)
4.) Little Red Riding Hood (7 parts-could be adapted for 6 by combining narrators' parts)
5.) Goldilocks & The 3 Bears (6 parts-could be adapted for 5 by combining narrators' parts)
6.) The 3 Little Pigs (5 parts)
7.) Jack & The Beanstalk (6 parts)
8.) Hansel & Gretel (6 parts)
9.) The Tortoise & The Hare (6 parts-could be adapted for 4, 5, or 6+ by adding the group of "animal friends")
10.) Stone Soup (5 parts)
For each script, there are also character necklaces to go along with the parts so audience members can tell which character is which!
I wrote these scripts with beginning readers in mind. I think they are well suited to first and second graders working on fluency, but they could be suitable for advanced kindergartners as well. Please check out the preview files to get a better idea of what is included.
This is a great deal at only $10 for 10 plays-that works out to a $1 a play!
