This Reader's Theater was written for a small group of 4 students. It is spring time and my students love roly poly bugs so I created this to tie into with our science reports. In this script Matt has lost his roly poly bug and is looking for it when Pam comes over. Pam has never heard of roly poly bugs and her friends help to explain all of their names, what they really are, where they live, and what they eat. After hearing how cute they are and what great family members they are Pam even wants to try to keep one as a pet. I write small group reader's theaters so they will work better in centers and to avoid having long wait times between student's lines. Wait time is not reading time and often turns into off task behavior time. Small group reader's theater helps to get students reading more and encourages even reluctant readers to practice fluency. 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. Most of my scripts are black and white so that they can be photo copied easier for your students. Please let me know what you think.
