Students become excited about reading with reader's theater scripts, and they love the Little Red Hen! In this story, the Little Red Hen works industriously and saves the day when she, the Rooster, and the Mouse are going to be eaten by the Big Bad Fox!
Help your students develop fluency by allowing multiple readings of the script. Encourage them to use expressiveness, intonation, and inflection when rehearsing the text. This text is simple enough for first grade but will be enjoyable for older students, too. It has 10 reading parts. For added fun, copy, cut out, and let students make headbands to wear with the character pictures by stapling them onto construction paper bands.
