* * * * * * * * * *
This readers' theater activity pack is available as part of a discounted bundle of 9 different holiday-themed readers' theater activity packs and poetry collections:

* * * * * * * * * *

This humorous readers' theater St. Patrick's Day activity pack includes the following:

>"How to ALMOST Catch a Leprechaun": 7-page, 6-reader script
>Sound Effects: Cue Cards
>Vocabulary: Word Work activity
>Comprehension Check: Inference graphic organizer activity
>The Legend of Leprechauns: Fun Facts page
>An overview of readers' theater & the four elements of fluent reading

The script includes sound effects for which students may choose to include audience participation. Cue cards are provided that students can use to cue the audience for a unique, interactive readers' theater performance.

The script also 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.

If you choose to do script-based vocabulary instruction, the Word Work vocabulary activity included with the script uses four of the “Watch-out words!” for more in-depth vocabulary study. A Sample Answer Key provides a basic, kid-friendly explanation of each word’s meaning, which can be used when actively teaching students the words.

If you want to strengthen students' inference skills, you can use the Comprehension Check: Inference graphic organizer activity as another extension of the script. A Sample Answer Key is included.

With the The Legend of Leprechauns: Fun Facts page, students can learn what a leprechaun's REAL favorite color is. (HINT: It's not green!)

A basic overview of readers' theater is also provided, including information on the four essential components of reading fluency—accuracy, rate, phrasing, and expression.
