The classic tale of The Mitten is retold as a Readers' Theater for beginning readers. This script is perfect for kindergarten and first grade readers! The repetitive text and use of sight words make it easy to read. This Readers' Theater is the perfect supplement to a unit about winter, forest animals, or cooperation. It works great for shared reading or as a follow-up for guided reading.

This Readers' Theater script includes 8 parts:

• Narrator

• Hedgehog

• Squirrel

• Rabbit

• Owl

• Fox

• Bear

• Mouse

Each part is color-coded on the script, making it easier for early readers to follow along and identify their parts. The font is selected specifically for beginning readers: easy-to-read with plenty of space between words. If you have fewer than 8 readers, it works well to allow some children to have two of the smaller roles (any but the narrator.)

Also included are crowns for each of the characters (with a choice of a boy or girl for the narrator.) Alternately, there are small oval cards for each character that teachers may use instead.

To use these scripts for partner reading or center work, bind them in a pocket folder and add the included title labels.

All materials (scripts, crowns, character cards, and title labels) are included in both full color and in black-and-white.
