I wrote this readers theater script to complement a reading unit on the story "Dragon Gets By". However, it would go perfectly with any reading unit on dragons, or a unit on healthy eating and the food groups.
It's written at a primary level, particularly with second graders in mind but the content is appropriate for 1st through 3rd grade. There are seven roles so it can be accomplished in small groups or by taking turns, or you can combine the parts of the dragons as needed.
It's a short and simple script that is excellent for oral reading practice. Students may work on their fluency and expression while acting out their roles. In addition, it would be easy to create props to go with the story line.
My second graders loved performing it! It also was an excellent springboard for a class discussion on what makes food healthy and how food fit into the different food groups.
