BACK TO SCHOOL - ONE WAY OR ANOTHER!
A READER'S THEATER SCRIPT FOR GRADES 2-4 (3rd grade target)
Get your back to school time rolling right along with a wacky, wonderful Reader’s Theater play! It’s a chance to jump right into reading with a cooperative - and often hilarious - project, and, if you like, an opportunity for your students to work together on a performance piece for Back to School Night.
There are two versions of this script: the first is a regular Reader’s Theater, which can be used by up to 5 students in your Reading Centers or during any classroom Reading Time, as you wish. The second version is for 20 students (and can be adjusted for more or fewer students, to suit your class size), to be used as a whole class reading exercise, a class performance, or for actual performance - it’s perfect for a Back to School Night, or Open House Night!
This Reader’s Theater script is tailored to 3rd grade, with a few extra vocabulary terms introduced (I always believe in introducing new vocabulary!). Note that advanced 2nd grade readers might wish to use it, and 4th grade classes might find it enjoyable as well.
*Back to School Reader’s Theater worksheets will be posted to accompany the script, with reading comprehension, spelling, vocabulary, contractions, compound words, Spanish flashcards, conditionals, plurals, and discussion questions.
