PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here's a set of Readers' Theater scripts for My Father's Dragon, the classic novel (and Common Core Text Exemplar) by Ruth Stiles Gannett. Readers' Theater is a powerful way to build fluency by providing structure and purpose for reading. And, it's fun! Easy prep for you, maximum engagement for your students! I use this book with third grade students, and have aligned the resources to the CCSS for that grade (see preview). It can also be used with second and fourth grade students for whom the reading level is appropriate.

This set includes a Readers' Theater script (written for three readers) for each chapter of My Father's Dragon. (Since the novel is now in the public domain it is permissible to use the text in this way.) Children practice their individual part, read the passage aloud with their group, and then trade parts, repeating the process until each student has read all three parts. Download the preview for a sample script!

Powerful, fun fluency practice!
