This reader's theater was written for a small group of 3 students.In the script, Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep and doesn’t know where to find them. Little Boy Blue tells her to leave them alone and they will come home, wagging their tails behind them. Of course that doesn’t work out to well and soon the sheep are found without their tails. Bo-Peep is saddened by it but eventually she finds their tails and gets them attached again.
I use all of my Reader's Theaters to help students improve their fluency. My students, especially the ones struggling to read, still require motivation to improve and that is where Reader's Theater comes in. As I have said before, small groups are better because students aren't waiting as long to do their part and they get more practice in. This means less wait time and less off-task time. My ESL students find these scripts to be their favorite part of our lesson time. Please let me know what you think of this one.
Most of my scripts are black and white to make it easier to photocopy. If you like this script check out my other ones. My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone and I hope that you will enjoy this small group Reader's Theater. If you like this script look for other Mother Goose scripts. I've even put a book of them together.Thank you.
