This product feature is an exciting one for My Reading Resources. It is the first that features our new and updated styling!
Do you use readers’ theaters in your classroom? They can be so much fun! They help to engage students in the reading and are great for practicing expressiveness, intonation, and inflection and for improving fluency.
The Little Red Hen Learns About St. Patrick’s Day features a new spin on the classic Little Red Hen story. Instead of trying to persuade her friends to help her make bread, the Little Red Hen learns about St. Patrick’s Day traditions from a new Irish friend.
This readers’ theater features:
- 7 separate speaking parts
- 6-8 minute reading time
- Flesch-Kincaid level 2.8
This readers’ theater also includes pictures on page 2 can be cut apart. Students can color them and staple them to strips of construction paper to make character headbands to wear as they perform. They could also be taped to Popsicle sticks and held up for the audience to see instead of making headbands.
Have fun! Hope this brings “the luck o’ the Irish” to your classroom!
