Product Description
This Reader's Theater was written for a small group of 4 students. In Spanish the title would be 'La Historia del Cinco de Mayo.' It is to help students understand the history behind Cinco de Mayo. It is great way to tie in Social Studies with Language Arts and Spanish! In the script, a girl named Sofia is excited because her mom has told her they will be going to a Cinco de Mayo party and she might even let her stay home from school. Michael doesn’t think that is very fair and Cindy thinks that Cinco de Mayo is about Mexico’s Independence but José explains that it is about an amazing battle that took place when France invaded Mexico. Sofia helps to fill in some of the details of the battle and explains how people celebrate it. Michael asks if Cinco de Mayo is like Saint Patrick’s Day where everyone can celebrate and Sofia offers to ask her mom to let Michael and Cindy come with them to the party./ Sofía está emocionada porque su madre le ha dicho que van a ir a una fiesta para celebrar El Cinco de Mayo y que incluso podría dejar que se quede en casa y faltar a la escuela. Miguel no cree que sea muy justo y Cindy piensa que el Cinco de Mayo es sobre la Independencia de México, pero José explica que se trata de una increíble batalla que tuvo lugar cuando Francia invadió México. Sofía ayuda a explicar algunos de los detalles de la batalla y explica cómo la gente lo celebra. Miguel pregunta si el Cinco de Mayo es como el Día de San Patricio, donde todos pueden celebrar y Sofía ofrece pedirle a su mamá que deje que Miguel y Cindy vengan con ellos a la fiesta.

There is a short opinion writing assignment for students to respond to when they are through. We write small group reader's theaters so they will work better in centers and to avoid having long wait times between student's lines. Wait time is not reading time and often turns into off task behavior time. Small group reader's theater helps to get students reading more and encourages even reluctant readers to practice fluency.

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.

We love tying in multiple subjects with reading and have done so. If you like this script please check out some of our others. Most of our scripts are black and white with only a border or an occasional colored picture on front so that they can be photo copied easier for your students. Please let us know what you think.

If you would like the script in English please visit Wonbyone's store.
