Here is a quick and easy Reader's Theater script for the story The Ugly Duckling! Originally told by Hans Christian Anderson, this is an easier version for younger students.
In this download you'll get the script and printables for character necklaces (or headbands, depending on how you print them). I also made a quick Reader's Theater rubric that either the teacher or students can use to assess their performance. Also included is a making connections graphic organizer!
There are 9 speaking parts in this play and I wrote it for a group of fairly accomplished readers. This is appropriate for late first grade or second grade readers (probably a DRA level I or higher). Check out the preview to see what's included!
Thank you for stopping by! PS: If you are interested in MORE Reader's Theater, you should check out my folk tales/fairy tales bundle: Folk Tales & Fairy Tales Reader's Theater Bundle. 10 scripts for $10!
