Product Description

Reader's Theatre • Skinnybones by Barbara Park

Reading Level: 4.5 (suitable for grades 4-6)

Number of parts for girls and boys 9 (4 male, 2 female, and 3 of

either gender) If more speaking parts are needed,

consider dividing up the narrator’s parts between more students, or

divide your class in half for 2 groups of the same RT which would

mean double the amount of available parts).

Fluency, group work, and laughing aloud are the goals of this humorous and witty Reader's Theatre script!

Designed with 4th - 6th graders in mind, this witty script based upon Chapters 1-3 from the book, Skinnybones, also reinforces the character quality of getting along with others and practices the writing skill of alliteration. Practicing and performing a Reader's Theatre is a very memorable activity for building connections between the students and for increasing reading fluency!

Skinnybones is the story of 6th grader Alex Frankovitch, and how his big mouth gets him into trouble consistently. Realizing his true talent as a funny man in kindergarten, he uses his humor to talk his way out of any mess and to make life in the classroom memorable, much to his teachers’ dismay. Unfortunately, Alex goes too far with his big mouth and gets into the biggest mess ever with the biggest creep in the entire school. Will he humorously talk his way out of it?

To complete this project, students will NOT

• have to memorize anything!

• need costumes (it's more fun if you do, however)!

• need props (it's more fun if you do, however)!

• need to perform the script (It's more fun if you do, however)

This Reader's Theatre can either be performed for your own class, another class, or for your hard-working school staff.
