Readers' Theater, Grade 1 productions offer teachers the flexibility of casting more than one reader for each role as a way to support emerging readers.
The 15 scripts include the following features that provide additional support for emerging readers:
- Simple rhyming text helps increase predictability of the text in the script for "Too Much Noise ," a traditional Jewish folktale.
- Scripts based on familiar folktales such as "The Three Billy Goats Gruff," "The Little Red Hen," and "The Three Little Pigs" increase students' comfort with read-aloud material.
- A patterned story structure and repeating choral refrain help support beginning readers in "Out in the Woods."
