Product Description
Readers theater motivates and engages readers. Used for fluency instruction, it is a proven research-based (best practices) reading strategy that provides a context for authentic reading and re-reading. This script does not have the moral stated, so students can discuss and figure out the message for themselves. (CCSS 2.2 and CCSS 3.2) It’s great for centers or small groups. Extend the reading lesson by asking students to write or orally recount the story and state the moral. Great to include in sub packets!

Aesop’s fables are still loved even though they had their beginnings in Ancient Greece more than two thousand years ago! This story about a fox that can’t get what he wants and then decides it isn’t worth having anyway is a popular one. It has been rewritten to appeal to today's kids as a readers' theater script with 6 speaking parts. Great for character education, too!

**The script does not have the moral stated, so students can discuss and figure out the message for themselves.

Readers’ theaters are great for your sub packets!
