Plan Your Own Script Template
Reader’s Theater is one of the best tools in the classroom to have students gain fluency, accuracy and comprehension in reading. It also reinforces listening skills, and teamwork.
This is a fun little script, in which the students will learn a lot about plants and insects, while learning new Science vocabulary and getting their reading fluency practice!
It includes two great very visual crafts activities, where you can assess your student’s learning and exhibit their work!
It has a planning sheet, and a template for your students to write their own script. In my experience students love this activity, and they get to use their own voice in the creation.
Make sure they act out the script provided, and later on, they can act out their own script, with their own characters.
I’m a bilingual teacher so all my plays will be written in English and Spanish, but you can buy them separately in my store. The script will come both highlighted for color copies, or B&W for saving ink.
Hope you and your critters enjoy a little drama! ☺
