PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This script was written for three students and for Halloween. In the script: A sweet little boy is allowed to stay up on Halloween and eat nothing but candy. It isn’t long before he is being rude and mean. He ends up staying up too late and gets a stomach ache. He has become, Franken-Cranky! The next day, his rude and terrible behavior continues. Mom and dad get him to bed early and are thankful when their sweet little boy returns. The next Halloween they are more careful. The lesson for my students is not to eat too much candy on Halloween or stay up too late. I write reader's theaters because I find them to be an excellent way to motivate all readers, including reluctant ones, to practice fluency. I write small group scripts because the ONLY way reader's theater works as a tool for fluency is when there is very little wait time. In scripts with lots of characters, students spend time off-task or waiting to read this does not help them become fluent. My scripts are written in black and white except the occasional photo on front and with no cute 'stuff' on them so that they can be reproduced on a copier easier and with less ink. Please note, if you are a 3rd grade teacher, your students will need a little extra help with vocabulary. 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. If they do, check out some of my other scripts. There are several for Halloween and many other topics. Thankyou!
