This is a small group reader's theater is for 3 students. This is the tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. It is on a 2nd grade reading level. In the script - Goldilocks does not listen to her parents and gets lost in the woods. She finds the home of the three bears and goes inside. She tries each bear’s food and eats all of Baby bear’s. Next, Goldilocks tries each bear’s chair and likes Baby bear’s. She breaks it. Then Goldilocks tries their beds. She likes Baby bear’s and falls fast asleep. The bears come home and find their food eaten, a chair broken, and Goldilocks sleeping in Baby bear’s bed. She is scared and runs away. She never comes back again.
There is a writing prompt for the students to do at the bottom of the last page. Make sure students look at the vocabulary on the front page. I use reader's theaters to encourage my students to practice fluency. It is a fun way to do something that they need. Most of my scripts are in black and white so they photo copy easily and do not waste ink. This one has a color picture on the front page but that is all. The problem with many other reader's theaters is that students spend a lot of time waiting for their part. When you have a small group they get more practice and you get less off task behaviors.
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 you like this script look for more 2nd grade reading level fairy tale scripts at my store. Please let me know how things go!
