Holiday Partner Plays for 4th and 5th grades: These SIX partner plays are intended to be used as fluency-building activities that 4th-5th students can do with a partner. They require minimal teacher support, thereby allowing teachers to work with other small groups. For teachers who implement reading centers, these plays are perfect for “Read to Someone” activities.
When you purchase this resource, you will get to choose the format that best meets your needs and your students' needs. You will choose between the printable partner plays and the paperless version that uses Google Slides.
It comes with a BONUS recording sheet. After reading the scripts, students answer the comprehension questions that accompany each script.
This set includes six independent scripts that will allow your students to "travel around the world" learning about the holiday traditions of various cultures, religions, and countries:
Background on this set of plays: I wrote my original set of eight holiday partner plays several years ago and posted them in my TpT store. Then, in 2018, a teacher wrote to me and asked me to consider writing additional holiday scripts. She explained that she would truly appreciate having at least 14 unique holiday scripts for her class of 28 students. She shared her idea of giving each pair of students a different holiday script, and having them read it in front of the class as part of a holiday performance. I thought this was a great idea! After all, I know how "excited" kids get during the last week before Winter Break, and I realized that this would be an engaging, fun holiday reading activity to keep kids focused during those crazy days. If you would like to facilitate a holiday partner play reading performance in your classroom, I invited you to check out my first set of holiday partner plays.
