Children will love performing The First Easter (based on New Testament gospels accounts) with this 10-part reader's theater and super cute performance puppets (oversized stick puppets)! At the same time, they'll build reading fluency, and listening and speaking skills. Maximum fun and engagement for your students, easy prep for you! Perfect for Christian school, Sunday School, home school, or an Easter program!
The story is scripted for ten readers (Jesus, Disciple, Woman, Soldier, Angel, and five readers who read the narrative parts of the story). In some places ALL readers and characters read together as a chorus; these parts use repetition and are meant to be chanted in unison for dramatic effect. This also give everyone more opportunities to read!
Please see the PREVIEW above for a closer look at what's included with this resource!
This set includes:
• A complete set of 10 scripts (with the parts for each reader already marked in blue)
• A master copy of the script (which can be copied and the parts marked by hand, if color printing is not an option)
• Performance Puppets (oversized stick puppets for Jesus, Disciple, Woman, Soldier, and Angel to print on cardstock or tag; after students color them, mount them on flat sticks or rulers for use during the Reader's Theater performance)
• Reader Headbands (Tags for Jesus, Disciple, Woman, Soldier, Angel, and for each of the five readers. Color and mount on sentence strips to form headbands to wear during the performance.)
