Now with comprehension activities and extensions! This adaptation of W.W. Jacobs''s Gothic masterpiece is perfect for grades 5 through 8 (and potentially 4th). Originally published in the April 2012 issue of Scholastic's Scope magazine, use it as fluency-building reader's theater or as as a full classroom production or podcast. This twenty-minute play includes nine pages and parts for up to eleven students. What would you do with three wishes? Readers of the Monkey's Paw learn that those who meddle with fate do so at their own peril! Original purchaser is licensed to reproduce one class set per year! Be sure to take a look at my other plays based on short story classics in my TpT store. Thanks!
