Here is a Reader's Theater that is sure to have your students laughing while they increase their reading skills! It is based on the fun book called The Ninjabread Man by C.J. Leigh.
There are roles for 9 students as well as headbands/necklaces to match!
Reader's Theaters promote a love of reading while increasing not only reading skills, but reading and speaking fluency. Whether or not I perform my Reader's Theaters in front of other classes, I keep them out in my classroom for students to "free read" if they have library time. Sometimes I make a center just practicing previously completed scripts. Sometimes I will see two students picking up a script and having a little play! Whatever gets words into their hands works for me!
The only problem I see with this script is that all of the students will want to be the ninjabread man! But that's what so great about Reader's Theaters--students can switch roles which makes for even more reading practice!
Please feel free to make any changes you would like.
The grade level of this book is listed as 3.7.
