I love using Readers Theatre Scripts and accompanying resources in the classroom to bring to life theatre, ELA standards, and practice reading fluency! In this bundle of fairy tale scripts, the learning objective is teaching Point of View. This concept can be a tricky standard for lots of students to grasp and I have found that theatre can be an effective teaching strategy. In this bundle there are three scripts that are based upon classic fairytales: Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Cinderella. The scripts are adaptations that explore the point of view of the villains in the classic stories i. e. the Wolf, the Giant, and the Stepsisters. These short, drama-packed scripts are memorable, fun and will have your students remembering the key ELA concept: Point of View for years to come! *It is designed to be worked on in flexible small groups of 5-8 students. This activity makes a great Literacy Center! (Most appropriate for 2nd- 4th grade students. Although I have found some 1st grade classrooms to also really enjoy them!)

Also included in this download are: 1) Readers Theatre Teaching Tips 2) Student Performance Checklist/ Rubric 3) Teacher Notes & Extension Ideas to incorporate grade level writing skills and visual arts into the learning.

Summary of the Plays:

1) The Wolf's Side of the Story- This script focuses in on the Wolf's point of view during the major events of the classic Little Red Riding Hood story. Students will love recounting the story from the lens of the Wolf and discovering how he might have been thinking and feeling towards Little Red. We find out that Little Red wasn't as kind and innocent as the classic story makes her out to be!

2) The Giant's Side of the Story- This script focuses in on the Giant's point of view during the major events of the classic Jack and the Beanstalk story. Students will love recounting the story from the lens of the Giant and discovering how he might have felt towards Jack as he continually showed up to his castle and each time single-handedly stole the Giant's precious riches.

3) The Stepsisters' Side of the Story- This script focuses in on the Stepsisters' point of view during the major events of the classic Cinderella. Students will love recounting the story from the lens of the Stepsisters and discovering how they may have felt towards their sister. We find out that Cinderella was rather whiny and cold to her sisters and not nearly as grateful as the storybooks made her out to be.
