One of my favorite children's stories of all time! If your students love Tomie dePaola's Strega Nona, they'll definitely enjoy acting out the story themselves.
This script has parts for readers of all levels.
Advanced: Narrator 1, 2 and 3
Basic: Big Anthony, Strega Nona
Below Basic: Townsperson 1, 2, and 3
Non-reader: The Magic Pasta Pot
(The Magic Pasta Pot can also by played by your "class clown" i.e. that student who will do anything to get a laugh)
To make the Magic Pasta Pot, take a large cardboard box and fill with strips of newspaper or paper chains. To see the Magic Pasta Pot my 3rd graders created, watch the video clip below!
