This is a small group Reader's Theater for 3 - 4 students. It is based on the Queen of Hearts poem that was originally published in 1782. This time, the Queen of Hearts is seeking damage for her tarts in court! She is suing the Knave of Hearts and he is only a child. If you like this script try the PACK!
I use reader's theaters to encourage my students to practice fluency. It is a fun way to do something that they need. My scripts are in black and white with the occasional color picture on the front so they are cheaper and easier to photo copy. The problem with many other reader's theaters is that students spend a lot of time waiting for their part. When you have a small group they get more practice in and less off task behaviors take place.
My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone and I hope that your students enjoy this script as much as mine did. Let me know how things go!
