Your students will love this reading, writing, speaking, listening, and hands-on project. Many kids come out of their shell when given the opportunity to act out a favorite story. The lesson gradually releases your students to recount a short story by rewriting it in script form with a group, making a puppet, and then acting out the drama for the class. Teachers will have the option of allowing students to act out the short story without puppet-making. This collaborative project will stimulate creativity in your students and enable them to be proud of their accomplishments while learning about their talents.
