Inspired by the story "Why Mosquitos Buzz in People's Ears", "Why Bees Buzz" follows several jungle animals through a series of misunderstandings thanks to a tall-tale-telling bee. This 8-part Reader's Theater will help students to improve their fluency while having fun. Note: the story "Why Mosquitos Buzz in People's Ears" is a small group text that is a part of Benchmark Advance's Second Grade Program (Unit 6). This packet includes two versions: the first version is 8 parts, the second version adds a ninth part for Baby Parrot. Baby Parrot has no lines, just crying and snoring. I added the role of Baby Parrot at the request of my students, who felt that Baby Parrot deserved a part.
