RESEARCH-PROVEN to meet Common Core and improve literacy
This script is no nursery rhyme. Higher-level vocabulary is introduced, including "bog, ford, harbinger, wretched, henpecked, and disclaim.”
The packet also contains relevant Informational text including articles on talismans and a study of happiness.
Rhyme is a fundamental part of the National Literacy Strategy and students who act out rhyme in reading gain confidence in reading ability and achievement. In groups up to four, students each have a part in this rhyming script that aligns with the plot.
