What makes this script special?
This is a readers’ theater that incorporates social skills, introduces vocabulary and can be differentiated.
Our students come to us at different levels, you can differentiate by having them practice on their own if they are already reading, If they are not there yet, and you also want to integrate technology, you can use the audio QR codes where I recorded their reading parts.
I made sure the scripts are not too long, interesting and that lead to a conversation about social skills, in this case honesty.
What skills will my students be working on?
Fluency, vocabulary, listening and reading comprehension.
Tips for implementing this activity?
You are an expert when it comes to your kids, but here are a few tips on how I implement this activity in my classroom. I have also included a step instruction on this packet.
There are 6 characters in this edition, so students will have to share role. I like to pair them up by ability but with the QR code you can still have your advanced and beginner readers together.
Before the play, we play the “I have, who has?” game. This helps to familiarize students with the new vocabulary.
When we decide on the roles, the first thing I do is to have them color their reading parts using the cast page.
