Readers' theater (also spelled "reader's theatre") is a terrific teaching tool for developing students' reading fluency, and students will enjoy this fractured fairy tales readers' theater script and literacy toolkit that puts a new twist on the fairy tale of Jack & the Beanstalk. The literacy toolkit includes the following:

>"Jack & the Cornstalk": 6-page script for 5-8 readers
>Sound Effects: Cue Cards
>Vocabulary: Word Work activity
>Fairy Tales Compare & Contrast graphic organizer activity
>Jack & the Beanstalk Leveled Reading List of both traditional and fractured fairy tale retellings
>Readers' Theater Weekly Practice Checklist
>An overview of readers' theater & the four elements of fluent reading

The script includes sound effects for which students may choose to include audience participation. Cue cards are provided that students can use to cue the audience for a unique, interactive readers' theater performance.

The script also includes a list of “Watch-out words!” This feature highlights challenging words for which students may need help as they practice. These words make terrific candidates for classroom vocabulary instruction.

If you choose to do script-based vocabulary instruction, the Word Work vocabulary activity included with the script uses four of the “Watch-out words!” for more in-depth vocabulary study. A Sample Answer Key is included.

If you want to strengthen students' skills with comparing and contrasting, you can use the Fairy Tales Compare & Contrast graphic organizer activity to have students compare the traditional Jack & the Beanstalk fairy tale with the fractured version. A Sample Answer Key is included.

For students who want even more fairy tale fun, a leveled booklist of a wide assortment of Jack & the Beanstalk-based stories is provided, from picture books to middle-grade novels.

For a classroom reading block, readers’ theater can be used as a student-monitored station during small-group instructional time, and my literacy toolkit includes a Weekly Practice Checklist that provides a framework for students’ day-by-day practice.

A basic overview of readers' theater is also provided, including information on the four essential components of reading fluency—accuracy, rate, phrasing, and expression.

In addition to this Jack & the Beanstalk readers' theater script, I have many other scripts and readers' theater bundles:
* TALL TALES BONUS BUNDLE

* READERS' THEATER MEGA BUNDLE OF SILLINESS

*HOLIDAY READERS' THEATER ALL-SCHOOL-YEAR FUNNY BUNDLE

* READERS' THEATER POETRY BUNDLE
