Reader's Theatre of Eve Bunting's Vietnam War Memorial story. (You can get this product for over 50% off if you buy it in my Reader's Theatre Bundle.) CCSS for 2nd Grade (written for Special Education/ELD students).
Please note that I've changed some things in this story to allow your class to use the parts they want (for example, instead of a little boy as the main character, the part is simply listed as "child" to give you the option of using a boy or a girl). There are also many extra crowns included to make sure everyone has many choices/options to express themselves.
If you are not familar with Bunting's writing, she is a very special writer who tackles the "big" issues through the venue of children's books. This one covers a sad but ultimately uplifting visit to the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington D.C. with all the other people who visit the wall for their own personal reasons. It is a very "moving" and "emotional" Reader's Theatre - enjoy!
The Wall (PDF and PPT) for the Vietnam War Memorial, Memorial Day, Veterans Day and even a page for Remembrance Day. All include: crowns, coloring pages, simple opinion writing page, collective nouns, retell puzzles with assessment page and assessment game board and questions.
Non-ASL editable version (except for restricted graphics pages) with CCSS 2nd grade standards included.
