This reader's theater was written for four students. It is one of my favorites and I have a lot of scripts. I've incorporated a Navajo tale. Ms. Coyote likes to imitate everyone and think she's better than anyone else. When she sees Does' fawns, she wants to find out her secret and make her cubs just as beautiful. Doe decides to teach her a lesson.
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. This one does have a colored picture on the first page but the rest is black and white. 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 in and less off task behaviors take place. If you like this script, look for others based on Native American tales at my store. I even have an entire book of them called 'Coyote Tales!'
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. Let me know how things go!
