Description

A read aloud play and eight pages of comprehension activities designed to satisfy the Common Core for around three bucks! Guy de Maupassant's classic short story about character and reputation. "A Piece of String," includes compelling characters, intriguing dialect, and a lesson that will resonate with students from 4th through 8th grade (and up!). Originally published in Scholastic's Scope magazine, "String" includes parts for ten to fifteen students depending on your casting needs. Use it as reader's theater to build reading fluency, or stage a full production. Fully reproducible and it even includes performance rights!
