PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I created "Reindeer Games" to teach my 4th grade students about the elements of drama around the Christmas holiday, but it is so much more than just a cute play! This drama incorporates the fun of talking reindeer with teaching about inclusion and standing up to bullies. Think of it as an updated "Rudolph". I've included vocabulary cards to help teach the terms of drama and a test to assess your students' understanding of several Common Core State Standards.

Included:
1. Vocabulary Cards: These 11 terms related to dramas are printable for a word wall or cut them apart and use them in a matching game
2. Drama: This 4-page drama includes a cast of characters, funny yet anti-bullying dialogue, stage directions, and 2 scenes. It's like an updated "Rudolph" story for today's kids.
3. Drama Test: 10 questions that assess students' understanding of elements of a drama as well as theme; a couple of multi-select questions will help prepare students for future Common Core standardized tests. Answer Key included.
4. Standards: 4th and 5th grade Common Core and TNReady Standards are listed on separate pages.
