This Reader's Theater was written for a small group of 3 students and their teacher or principal for Earth Day but can be done anytime you want to talk about recycling. A trash can is full and it is time to call your teacher, um, Recycle Man. But each student learns that anyone can be a hero and help save the planet by reusing, reducing, and recycling. I write small group reader's theaters so they will work better in centers and to avoid having long wait times between student's lines. Wait time is not reading time and often turns into off task behavior time. Small group reader's theater helps to get students reading more and encourages even reluctant readers to practice fluency. My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone and I hope that your students enjoy this script as much as mine did. Most of my scripts are black and white so that they can be photo copied easier and cost less on ink. Please let me know what you think.
