Readers’ Theater, Grade 1 productions offer teachers the flexibility of casting more than one reader for each role as a way to support emerging readers.
The 15 scripts include the following features that provide additional support for emerging readers:
Simple rhyming text helps increase predictability of the text in the script for “Too Much Noise!,” a traditional Jewish folktale.
Scripts based on familiar folktales such as “The Three Billy Goats Gruff,” “The Little Red Hen,” and “The Three Little Pigs” increase students’ comfort with read-aloud material.
A patterned story structure and repeating choral refrain help support beginning readers in “Out in the Woods.”
This resource contains teacher support pages, reproducible student pages, and an answer key.
