Format: Paperback
I just started using this book in my third grade class. My kids are a mix of struggling readers, second language learners, and not-quite-fluent readers. The children love to put on puppet shows,which I encourage because they are re-reading, learning to read as if they are speaking, picking up great vocabulary, and presenting what they've learned in a way they and their audience enjoy. Did this book hit the spot! We started with one of the plays, just having the children assign major character's parts and choral read the rest. The kids will be using the elements taught by the scripts in this book to write their own plays, based on the stories they have collected in their writing journals. In the coming weeks, kids will have demonstrated their memoir writing, animal research,etc, as plays. In addition to that, the scripts are based on fables and folktales third graders are familiar with, and help them to meet the NYS standards by reading and writing about them.
