Description

Are you looking for an engaging reading activity to do to recognize Veterans Day or Memorial Day? My students LOVE Readers' Theaters so I decided to write my own Readers' Theater script that we can read as an entire class on Veterans Day.

The script includes 27 parts. Therefore, it can be used as a whole class activity, or it can be used as a small-group activity (students are just awarded more parts!) If you have a slighter larger class, I have included ideas on how you could get a couple extra parts out of this script.

This product also includes a bonus activity! Before reading the script, students complete a worksheet similar to an anticipation guide. Students read statements and guess whether the Veteran-related sentences are true or false. AFTER reading the script, have your students return to the worksheet and answer the same questions again. It is always fun for students to see how much they learned! Plus, it holds them accountable to pay attention AND it gives us teachers a glimpse into their comprehension during the reading activity!

Check the preview to check out the readability and to determine if it is appropriate for your students. It shows pages 1,2,6, and 10 of the script, and the anticipation guide.

********This resource is available in TWO FORMATS:

1. TRADITIONAL PRINTABLES- Print the PDF and distribute paper copies to your students to complete.

2. TPT EASEL ACTIVITY- With this format, an interactive layer has been added to the original PDF!** You can assign this paperless version to your students via Google Drive, and students can read the script from a device.
