Product Description
This reader's theater script is based on the book "The Drinking Gourd" by F.N. Monjo. This book is appropriate for second through fourth grade readers. This script starts at chapter 2 and goes to th end of the book. I found it helpful to read the first chapter as a shared reading so that we could discuss the time period and background information before dividing up the parts in the script.

After an incident in church gets Tommy sent home early, Tommy discovers the runaway slaves his father has allowed to hide out in their barn. Tommy learns about the underground railroad and the meaning behind the drinking gourd as he and his father help Big Jeff, Vinnie, Little Jeff and Baby Pearl (the runaway slaves)to the next stop on the underground railroad.

Read about Tommy's adventure in The Drinking Gourd by F.N. Monjo. This reader's theater script engages students in learning about the underground railroad. This makes a lively and meaningful integrated literacy and Social Studies lesson.

Reader's theater is an exciting way for your students to learn how to read fluently with expression. Students must consider the feelings of the characters which prompts deeper comprehension.

I hope you and your students enjoy.
