This small group reader's theater is for 4 students. This script introduces the students to Deborah Samson who was the first lady to fight for the United States during the Revolutionary War. She dressed as a man. I use it during Women in History month or when we are studying the Revolutionary War. It is a great way to tie Language Arts in to drama and one more way to expose students to historical information.
I use reader's theaters to encourage my students to practice fluency. It is a fun way to do something that they need. Most of my scripts are in black and white so they photo copy easily. This one does have a colored picture on the first page but the rest is black and white. The problem with many other reader's theaters is that students spend a lot of time waiting for their part. When you have a small group they get more practice in and less off task behaviors take place.
My name is Melanie Whitesides but I 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!
