This is a small group reader's theater is for 5 students. This ties reading and language study together and is a great way to do two things at the same time. This script was intended to reinforce the 4 types of sentences. In the script - The Narrator is trying to introduce the 4 different sentence types to the audience but keeps getting interrupted. Each of the sentence types continues to make statements that show what they are. Exclamatory talks excitedly the entire time while Imperative gives orders. Interrogative does nothing but ask questions and Declarative makes statements. By the time you are finished talking you will remember which sentence type does what. When the performance is over, there is a writing prompt that challenges students to create sentences of their own and label them. 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 and do not waste ink. 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 and you get less off task behaviors. 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. If you like this script look for more science related scripts at my store. Please let me know how things go!
