Product Description
The Beaver and the Lumberjack
Adapted from Aesop's Fables
By Carol Montgomery

NOTE: You can also find "The Beaver and the Lumberjack", plus eight more Readers Theater fables, in our "Aesop's Fables Collection".

Short. Spunky. Character building. "The Beaver and the Lumberjack" Readers Theater is adapted from one of Aesop's Fables. The original Aesop Fable is known as "The Honest Woodcutter," "The Honest Woodman," "The Golden Axe," "Mercury and the Woodsmen," and more. Part of our character building category, "The Beaver and the Lumberjack" comes with annotated curriculum links (updated April, 2017) for easy lesson plans.

If you like simple fun for a small group it should be perfect! Or, use it chorally with two groups reading the character parts and the teacher reading the narrator parts. Although the readability is grade 3, Aesop's Fables are classic, so this script motivates students in grades 2-8. Use it as a springboard for discussions–even in middle school.

TIME: 3 minutes
CAST: 2 - 4 or 2 choral groups plus narrator(s)
TONE: sad to light
READABILITY: grade 3.3
CHARACTER TRAITS: honesty, diligence, gratefulness, helpfulness

Make Readers Theater easy:

• Short, 3-page script for motivating fluency
