PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This script follows Pecos Bill and Slew Foot Sue, fictional characters of the old west. The story of Pecos Bill was popular with pioneers as they searched for opportunity in a new land. This reader’s theater account of Pecos Bill is filled with hyperbole, making it the perfect tool to teach the tall tale genre to students.

Reader’s theater provides the perfect opportunity for repeated reading. Students will build word identification skills, increase reading speed, and experiment with expression as they practice their lines.

Dialogue for each character has been leveled with grade level equivalents. There are six parts in this play.

Examples of figurative language have been highlighted in the teacher copy of this script. Teachers may want to discuss the use of old west language in this script, which helps to give clues to the setting of the story.

A student response sheet is included. Students will identify their character’s personality traits, and create an illustration to represent their character. Students will analyze clues that give hints to the story’s setting, and determine examples of figurative language spoken by their character.
