This is a small group reader's theater for 4 students. It is a short version of the story of Pan. In the script, Marsha and Cindy missed class so they ask Greg and Peter what they learned about. They are told that the lesson was on a Greek god named Pan and, at first, they think that Pan was actually Peter Pan. Greg and Peter set them straight and tell them the story of how Pan came to be and where the first set of reed pipes came from. The writing prompt at the end asks students whether the nymph was right to run away from Pan.
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 written in black and white so that they are easier and cheaper to photocopy. 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 and you get less off task behaviors.
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. If you like this script look for other Greek tales. I also have a lot of ones by Aesop! Let me know how things go!
