Let students explore the first Thanksgiving in this reader's theater that tells the story of the friendship between the pilgrims and Indians which led to that first great feast! Included in this package is a round-robin reading version and a 10-part play version of the story, giving all students a chance to participate in this holiday literacy activity!
These scripts can be used for classroom read alouds, classroom performances, or can be easily adapted for a Thanksgiving play on the stage.
Reader's Theater helps to develop fluency through repeated exposure to text, increase comprehension, integrate reading, writing, speaking, listening in an authentic context, engage students, increase reading motivation, create confidence and improve the self-image of students, provide a real purpose for reading, and provide opportunities for cooperative learning.
