This small group reader's theater was written for 4 people. It presents some Halloween safety tips as well as discusses how context clues work. As you know, students work all year to understand how to use clues from the story to understand things and infer others. This script is a fun way to introduce or reinforce a lesson on using context clues. I work to include many different standards in LA, math, and science. I use reader's theaters to encourage my students to practice fluency. It is a fun way to do something that they need.
My scripts are in black and white except the occasional picture on the front page so they photo copy easily. The problem with many other reader's theaters is that students spend a lot of time waiting for their part and then their parts are actually quite small because they are sharing the pages. When you have a small group they get more practice in and less off task behaviors take place. If you like this script, look for more at my store! I even have a Halloween pack!
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. Let me know how things go!
