This reader's theater was created for four students. I have used this script with my third graders but it was for a higher group. This script is used around Saint Patrick's Day and involves a leprechaun. A leprechaun appears out of nowhere to grant Sally, Pat, and Brian three wishes in honor of Saint Patrick’s Day. As they try to decide what they really want, each of the students loses their wish on something silly. With the last wish the leprechaun leaves proving that leprechauns are very tricky. If you are interested in scripts for Saint Patrick's Day you can buy all six in the package called 'Irish Small Group Reader's Theater Pack' for $12. I write these scripts for small groups to help with fluency. When the group is small, they don't waste time sitting around waiting for their turn and get more time actually practicing. Reader's Theater actually encourages students who are reluctant to read. It is a fun way to get people to practice. You will also notice most of my scripts, including the picture are in black and white. This makes it easier to print and photocopy without too much ink. My name is Melanie Whitesides but I 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!
