This is a small group reader's theater is for 4 students. In Spanish, it is called 'El Informe de Noticias del Día de la Tierra'. In the script - Two reporters are out interviewing people about what Earth Day is. They select Bob and Sally to talk with. Bob and Sally are both students in class. Bob hasn’t listened very well but Sally has. Sally is able to say what her class is doing while Bob talks about making the Earth cookies or letting it sleep in. Together Sally and the Reporters are able to help straighten Bob out. When they end there are several suggestions made for how to help out when celebrating Earth Day. / Dos periodistas están entrevistando a la gente sobre lo que es el Día de la Tierra. Ellos seleccionan a Bob y Sally para hablar. Bob y Sally son estudiantes de una clase. Bob no ha escuchado muy bien pero, Sally lo ha hecho bien. Sally es capaz de decir lo que hace su clase para proteger al medio ambiente, mientras que Bob habla de hacer galletas en forma de la Tierra o de dejar dormir al planeta para ayudarlo. Juntos, Sally y los reporteros pueden ayudar a Bob comprender mejor el cuidado del medio ambiente. Cuando terminan, hay varias sugerencias para ayudar a celebrar el Día de la Tierra.
There is a writing assignment for the students to do at the bottom of the last page. Our 3rd graders were able to use this script but needed some vocabulary front loaded. Those words are on the cover page.
We use reader's theaters to encourage our students to practice fluency. As you know, students need to speak and read Spanish in order to become fluent and reader's theater is a wonderful way to motivate them to do both. There is only one color picture on the script and that is on the cover. 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 and you get less off task behaviors.
Our names are Julio Lopez and Melanie Whitesides but our store name is LosDosMaestros and we hope that your students enjoy this script as much as ours did. If you like this script look for the other ones created for Earth Day at our store. Please let us know how things go!
