This small group reader's theater is for four students. It will work for 3rd graders but they will need some support. In this script we were introducing the 100th day of school I actually assigned my students the same project where they bring 100 things that represent school or what they've learned. I encourage them to try to be creative with it and so I use the script to get them thinking. In the script, Samantha has been assigned a project for school’s 100th day of school. Her family is trying to help her figure out what to do but her brother, Billy, is not making it easy. Finally they find a way to tie in math and writing but Billy has to be convinced to help.
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. 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!
