This Reader's Theater was written for a small group of 4 students. It is about George Washington's love of dogs. In the script, Glen’s family have a lot of dogs and his dad’s dog is named Sweet Lips just like George Washington’s favorite dog. Martha, Jake, and Jamie didn’t know George Washington even had a dog and they didn’t know how much he loved them. Glen tells them about George’s love for dogs and how he once even gave a dog back to the enemy when they lost it and how George Washington even created a new breed of dog.This also makes a great script for the 4th of July, President's Day, Memorial Day, and other federal holidays.
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. Most of my scripts are black and white so that they can be photo copied easier and take less ink. Please let me know what you think.
