Readers' Theater Collection of Scripts: MOTHER GOOSE INTERRUPTED:
In this 8-script collection of fast and funny readers’ theater scripts, Mother Goose is continually interrupted—whether by a confused nursery-rhyme listener, five talking toes, or an irate Mother Hubbard who wants to set the record straight about her empty cupboard.

This readers' theater collection is also available as part of two different discounted bundles:

The readers' theater scripts in the collection are based on the following nursery rhymes:
*Hey, Diddle, Diddle
*Hickory Dickory Dock
*Little Miss Muffet
*Old Mother Hubbard
*This Little Piggy (also available as a stand-alone, FREE download)
*Three Little Kittens
Each MOTHER GOOSE INTERRUPTED script is about 3 1/2-pages long and includes a list of “Watch-out words!” This feature highlights challenging words for which students may need help as they practice. These words also make terrific candidates for classroom vocabulary instruction.
For a classroom reading block, readers’ theater can be used as a student-monitored station during small-group instructional time, and Appendix A: Weekly Practice Checklist
provides a framework for students’ day-by-day practice. Furthermore, since the number of readers per MOTHER GOOSE INTERRUPTED script ranges from 2–6, this provides flexibility in the grouping of students.
provides a copy of each of the classic Mother Goose nursery rhymes that underlie the readers' theater scripts.
Additional materials include a basic overview of what readers' theater is, numerous tips and tricks for successful implementation, and a listing of some of the applicable Common Core Standards for grades 3-5.
