Product Description
This is a small group reader's theater is for 4 students. It is based on the tall tale of John Henry. In the script - Two narrators are trying to tell the class about John Henry but two other students keep interrupting with questions and comments. Some of these questions and comments turn out to be good and help explain the story better.

There is a writing assignment for the students to do at the bottom of the last page. 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 and do not waste ink. 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 tall tales. Let me know how things go!
