This is the same version as the Word document but I had requests for a PDF so here it is. This is small group reader's theater is for three students. for small groups.The object is to improve fluency while teaching tornado safety! Mabel thinks that she and the others are supposed to be talking to the class about tomatoes but they are supposed to be doing TORNADOES. Matt and Nancy correct her and help lead the discussion. It teaches tornado safety as well as spreading some humor about the situation.
I use reader's theaters to encourage my students to practice fluency. It is a fun way to do something that they need. Most of my scripts are in black and white so they photo copy easily. This one does have a colored picture on the first page but the rest is black and white. 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!
