This reader's theater was written for 4 students. It was written for students who are on a 1st grade reading level. It is on level G. The Little Red Hen finds some wheat seeds and wants to plant them to get wheat for flour which she will use to make yummy bread. She asks her friends to help her but they will not. The Little Red Hen does it all by herself and gets to eat the bread alone.
I use all of my Reader's Theaters to help students improve their fluency. My students, especially the ones struggling to read, still require motivation to improve and that is where Reader's Theater comes in. I use small group reader's theaters because they are more effective than large groups. There is less wait time between parts and that means students spend more time on task practicing. This also means there will be less off task behaviors.
My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone. I hope that you will enjoy this small group Reader's Theater. Please let me know what you think of this one. Most of my scripts are black and white to make it easier to photocopy. Thank you.
