I love this reader’s theater because students are engaged and excited throughout the activity.
The script introduces students to a classic fairy tale (different from the version they are probably familiar with) that they may not otherwise have chosen to read on their own.
The script makes differentiation easy and allows students at all abilities to work together to practice fluency and build vocabulary.
This script and engaging worksheets can be completed in one class period or extended to last an entire week depending how often you choose to read script and allow students to switch characters.
