These 2-part reader’s theater scripts based on Mother Goose nursery rhymes are the perfect way to introduce the joy of reader’s theater to beginning readers! The scripts include five traditional nursery rhymes scripted for emergent readers, and a second version of each rewritten for students at a little higher reading level. No matter the level, partners will have plenty of fun reading together while building reading fluency and listening and speaking skills. To extend the fun, students can also illustrate an emergent reader for one or more of the rhymes, using the blacklines included in this resource. Easy prep for you, maximum engagement for your students!
This set includes:

• Materials for five rhymes: Humpty Dumpty, Little Miss Muffet, Hey Diddle Diddle, Jack and Jill, and Old Mother Hubbard
• Two scripts for each rhyme, a traditional version for emergent readers and a revised version for students at a slightly higher reading level. (Rhymes for both levels are scripted for two readers.)
• Reader Headbands: One blackline headband for each rhyme for children to color and wear during their performance, if desired.
• Emergent Readers: Blackline covers and pages for each rhyme. Copy the pages you need, cut apart on the cutlines, and staple as a booklet; students add the illustrations.
