PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Valentine's Day Readers' Theater: Are you looking for something fun to do for Reading during the week of Valentine's Day? This set of four Readers' Theaters will certainly spice things up!

This BUNDLE contains four separate Readers' Theater scripts:

1. A Box of Chocolates- During a hectic shopping trip, Derek decides to buy a box of chocolates for his math tutor as a way to show his appreciation. After they return home, however, his two-year-old brother eats the chocolates himself!

2. Jaime's (Un)lucky Day- After Jaime (a high school student) spends all day making a special cake for his girlfriend, his younger sister accidentally knocks it to the floor. What appears to be a catastrophe ends up being a blessing in disguise.

3. A Gift from the Heart- Twins, Bella and Brandon, want to give their teacher a special gift, but they have no money to buy something special. An opportunity arises, though, and they are able to give Mrs. Strom a "gift from the heart". They realize that this type of gift is more meaningful than any store-bought gift could ever be!

4. A Valentine's Day Proposal- Mr Chester (a P.E. teacher) decides to propose to Miss Carson (a classroom teacher). Best of all, he lets her students in on the secret, and they get to participate in the proposal!

This bundle also contains several "extras"!

1. A Monday through Friday SYNOPSIS of the LESSON PLANS I write as my class prepares to perform these Readers' Theater scripts.

2. A SUMMARY of each script

3. A PAGE about PARTS (how many parts each script contains, and how I would divide the parts if I need more than 29 parts)

Check the preview to check out the readability and to determine if it is appropriate for your students. (I wrote the scripts with my fourth and fifth grade students in mind.)

This resource is also part of a BUNDLE. If you like to do Readers' Theaters throughout the school year, you might want to check this out:

Also, I created a 34-minute video where I explain why, when, and how I use readers' theaters in an upper elementary classroom. Click on the following link to check it out: Performing Readers' Theater in the Classroom: Video.


**IMPORTANT NOTE: One story is very similar to the story in my Box of Chocolates Plot Craftivity resource. This is intentional! I will use BOTH of these resources in my classroom in February. My students will complete the plot craftivity the week BEFORE they will do the Readers' Theater activities. Once the Readers' Theater is performed, we will, as a class, COMPARE and CONTRAST stories! (The setting and theme are the same, but the plot is a bit different!) Obviously, you do not have to have this craftivity to do the Readers' Theater scripts.
