RESEARCH-PROVEN to meet Common Core and improve literacy
This script is no nursery rhyme. Higher-level vocabulary is introduced, including "apprised, Sioux, elite, sot, imp, stockade, invective, and lout.”
The packet also contains relevant Informational text including articles about the Lindbergh kidnapping and topics from late 19th century schools.
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.
