This package features four original scripts written for emergent to moderate readers that includes rhyming and repetitive text to aid with decoding and fluency.
The nursery rhyme stories include:
- Humpty Dumpty
- Little Miss Muffet
- Little Boy Blue (with Little Bo Peep)
- Hey, Diddle, Diddle
For each script there is the following:
- A poster page with the nursery rhyme
- An original Reader's Theater script with pictures over difficult, less frequent, non-CVC words to help students read.
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.

*Note: Suggested reading is for emergent 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.
