Product Description
This Reader's Theater is for 3 - 6 students. It is a Just-So story. In the script, When the world was new animals were beginning to work for Man. Camel did not want to work for Man so it went to live in the desert. The other animals went to visit Camel and ask it to come and work but all it would ever say was, ‘Humph!’ The animals told Man what Camel said and then Man told them that they were going to have to work harder because Camel wouldn’t. They got angry and told the Djinn of all the deserts. The Djinn went to talk to Camel but Camel kept saying, ‘Humph!’ so the Djinn gave it a humph. We call it a hump now so it won’t hurt Camel’s feelings. To this day Camel works hard and uses its hump when it goes without food. There is a short writing assignment afterwards asking students to identify the moral or lesson of the story.

I use reader's theaters to encourage my students to practice fluency. It is a fun way to do something that they need. My scripts are in black and white with only the occasional color picture on front so they photo copy easily. 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 in and less off task behaviors take place.

My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone and, if your students enjoy this script, look for more Just-So scripts at my site. I hope that your students enjoy this script as much as mine did. Let me know how things go!
