This package includes four fable-themed Reader's Theater scripts:
- The Tortoise and the Hare
- The Lion and the Mouse
- The Boy Who Cried Wolf
- Town Mouse and Country Mouse
This package would be great to use for a unit on fables and as an introduction to Reader's Theater, as the texts will be very familiar to students.
*Note: Suggested reading is for easy/moderate readers, however, reading levels vary school to school, classroom to classroom, and student to student, so please use the preview option before purchasing to ensure these materials are right for you. Also, feel free to adjust the scripts to meet your and your students' needs.
Reader's Theater helps to develop fluency through repeated exposure to text, increase comprehension, integrate reading, writing, speaking, listening in an authentic context, engage students, increase reading motivation, create confidence and improve the self-image of students, provide a real purpose for reading, and provide opportunities for cooperative learning.
