Owen by Kevin Henkes is a delightful story and a Caldecott Honor Book! I created this Reader's Theater for use in my class, and I thought you might like it, too! The students had so much fun!
There are parts for Mrs. Tweezers, Mother, Father, and Owen, of course! I incorporate the use of "All" so that the children constantly need to pay attention and not just wait for their "turn" to read!
Please feel free to change the script in any way that would better fit your class.
If you have access to YouTube in your classroom, you can watch the Owen video. I liked the one dated Nov. 29, 2011. It is 5:37 seconds. It was uploaded by OUO3.
If you like this Reader's Theater, you might like these by Kevin Henkes, too!
