Bundle Description
Five engaging and entertaining Reader's Theater scripts featuring a variety of story lines. Kids love practicing and performing these! Written at a grade three reading level. Also suitable for early grade four and the end of grade two. Performance time for each is roughly 5 minutes. (Files are pdf)

Reader's Theater is great for developing reading fluency and vocabulary, but it is also an excellent way to build camaraderie in the classroom.

One of the reasons I wrote these was that I wanted a set of scripts with a fair distribution of lines in each script. Unless I've indicated a part as a minor role, you can be sure that each part will have a decent number of lines for each of your students.

All of the materials in this download come in black and white. Should you have access to a color printer, I've included some pages with color.

MOUSE ON THE MOON (7 PARTS) - Space enthusiast, Little Mouse, sneaks onto a spaceship and becomes an unlikely space hero. He single-handedly saves the life of a headstrong guinea pig, earning the admiration of astronauts Sue and Pete, as well as the entire world watching on TV. (This script includes references to the moon landing, which has its 50th Anniversary coming up in July/2019)

THE THREE LITTLE PIGS AND FRIENDS (6 PARTS + 1 minor role) - The Big Bad Wolf is long gone and it's time for the Three Little Pigs to get on with life. They embark on some serious renovations, but can they find room in their hearts and in their new home for a grumpy, desperately lonely Troll? (Special appearance by Little Red Riding hood)

BLAST OFF (5 PARTS + 1 minor role) Three curious children unintentionally hijack their neighbor's shiny flying machine. They fly halfway across the world to Antarctica, where they rescue an injured penguin. (An animal protection theme and also great for learning about the continents)

CLAMS AND STARS (6 PARTS) Life is ho-hum for Clams (a clam) and Stars (a starfish). It's the same old, same old, day in and day out, until one day when an octopus and a hammerhead shark whisk them away for an adventure of a lifetime. (For Finding Nemo fans)

THE VEGGIE THIEF (4 PARTS) The Community Garden becomes a crime scene when Skunk's vegetables disappear. Her steadfast friend, Rabbit, consoles her and serves up some tasty dishes to boot, while Rabbit tries to figure out whodunnit.

You are welcome to download The Veggie Thief for FREE as a sample of my work.
