Snowman Readers' Theater: "Freddy and Friends" is a short but fun script that I wrote to delight young snowman lovers!
Readers theaters are an effective strategy for developing and refining fluency, while reinforcing comprehension.
In this story, Freddy is a snowman that has helpful friends roll him up and put him in the freezer until next winter! The script sounds a little lyrical and could be put to a tune.
Common Core Aligned for grades 1 and 2 (although this script is also suitable for kindergartners who want a challenge, or second graders who need work on fluency. This readers theater is a great opportunity for struggling readers to gain confidence!
Prior to reading the scripts, read aloud the story passage, or have students read it with a partner. The script is for 9 readers but can be easily modified for fewer or more students.
Kids may pair up to read lines....you can vary this format. This is a pdf, so it is not editable, but you can easily assign parts to suit your class.

This is a great little readers theater to present at this time of year! Have your kids dress up in hats, scarves and mittens...and that's really all they need for props!
