This ground hog day themed reader's theater is just what you need. it is based on Janet Stevens book A Fuzz Frenzy where a tennis ball falls down a prairie dog hole and creates a problem. I adapted the words to create a script for 16 different characters (most of my class). Students will work on fluency and speaking like the character. They will also work on projecting their voice for an audience. I have added directions to make hats for each character.
