The script includes a list of “Watch-out Words!” This feature highlights challenging words for which students may need help as they practice. These words also make terrific candidates for classroom vocabulary instruction.
If you choose to do script-based vocabulary instruction, the Word Work
vocabulary activity included with the script uses four of the “Watch-out Words!” for more in-depth vocabulary study. A Sample Answer Key provides a basic, kid-friendly explanation of each word’s meaning, which can be used when actively teaching students the words.
For a fun, interactive readers-theater performance, students can use the Cue Cards
to have the audience join in creating the sound effects during the story.
If you want to strengthen students' skills with interpreting and using figurative language, you can use the Comparing with Similes
graphic organizer activity as another extension of the script. A Sample Answer Key is included.
With The Real Deal: Viking Facts That Will Probably Surprise You
page, students can learn which Norse god liked skiing and also find out why whale hunting was an extreme sport!
A basic overview of readers' theater is also provided, including information on the four essential components of reading fluency—accuracy, rate, phrasing, and expression.
