This is a small group reader's theater that was written for 3 students. It is a science reader's theater. If needed, you can change the names to make it for all boys or girls. This reader's theater was written to help remind students about the difference between inherited traits and learned traits. It ties our science curriculum in to reading. Anytime I can combine two subjects I do.
I use reader's theaters to encourage my students to practice fluency. It is a fun way to do something that they need. Most of my scripts are in black and white so they photo copy easily. This one does have a colored picture on the first page but the rest is black and white. 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 I hope that your students enjoy this script as much as mine did. Let me know how things go!
