Two tales, scripted for Readers Theatre.
Why the Rabbit Has a Short Tail is a great story to use when talking to students about greed, trickery, cleverness, - to name a few. Based on an Aboriginal Tale, students are sure to enjoy learning how rabbit learns a lesson, taught by clever Owl.
The Fox and the Grapes is based on an Aesop Fable and offers opportunities for students to talk about vanity, jealousy, - and more. Students will enjoy reading this one either in class or as a performance piece.
Some suggestions are given for Teaching and guiding students to work with these scripts, to develop good oral reading skills, and especially, to learn how to read between the lines to find the 'voice' of each character.
Both Scripts are scripted for 4 Voices.
