The literacy toolkit includes the following:

>"Twas the Night before Earth Day": 3-page script for 5 readers
>Vocabulary: Word Work activity
>Comparing with Similes graphic organizer activity
>Inside the Actions of Recycle Rick: 1-page environmental factsheet
>Making an Earth Day Difference activity
>An overview of readers' theater & the four elements of fluent reading

The script includes a list of “Watch-out words!” This feature highlights challenging words for which students may need help as they practice. These words also make terrific candidates for classroom vocabulary instruction.

If you choose to do script-based vocabulary instruction, the Word Work vocabulary activity included with the script uses the “Watch-out words!” for more in-depth vocabulary study. A Sample Answer Key is included.

If you want to strengthen students' skills with interpreting and using figurative language, you can use the Comparing with Similes graphic organizer activity as another extension of the script. A Sample Answer Key is included.

Inside the Actions of Recycle Rick is a 1-page factsheet that takes a closer look at some of the actions of the main character in the script, showing how his actions benefit the environment.

As a final activity, you can have students complete the Making an Earth Day Difference activity sheet. They brainstorm their own ways to help the environment and then use the internet and/or other resources to find facts supporting why their actions could make an important difference.

A basic overview of readers' theater is also provided, including information on the four essential components of reading fluency—accuracy, rate, phrasing, and expression.
