This Reader's Theater is for a group of 4 to 5 students. It takes the story of Hansel and Gretel and, well, TWISTS it! My students loved it. There is another Hansel and Gretel script I've written and I use both when I want to compare and contrast this story. I had to pre-teach a few words to the group but they were quite eager. If you have looked at any of my other scripts you'll know how much I believe in using Reader's Theater to improve student's reading abilities. It is motivational and highly engaging. What they read is always changing so that, even if they aren't as excited about one script, the next week they'll get another.
My scripts are in black and white with the occasional color picture on front which makes them easier and cheaper to photocopy. My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone. If you enjoy this script, look for other twisted fairy tales at my site. You can even save money by buying them in packs! I hope that your students enjoy the script as much as mine did! Thank you.
*Please note that feedback has suggested what I do with my students which is to pre-teach some of the vocabulary words in this script. Some of the ones on my list are puny, decrepit, stingy, and knots.
