2 Character Patterns for Head Crown Presentation in B&W (Act Out)
This package will include a list of Common Core Standards covered in reading, writing, listening, and science. I purposely insert science vocabulary in my scripts, and I include lots of context clues so that students can infer the meaning of the new words. By the time the science lesson starts, the students have already acquired background knowledge.
I’m a bilingual teacher so all my plays will be written in English and Spanish. You can find them both in my store. Perfect for bilingual and dual language classes. Also the script will come both highlighted for color copies, or B&W for saving ink.
Hope you enjoy a little drama!
