Focus on differentiation while meeting several Common Core Reading standards! This reader’s theater set features 4 popular tall tales from American folklore written on 3 separate reading levels for a total of 12 plays! Each script contains 6-7 parts, making it a perfect activity for centers or leveled guided reading groups! Modified versions provide support in basic fluency skills, regular versions focus on expression development, and enriched versions challenge students with tier 2 vocabulary and figurative language components. This set helps meet the Language Arts common core standards in the areas of seeing patterns in traditional literature (R.L.4.9), fluency & expression!
