Stimulate each student's thinking skills and build other life skills with Readers Theater based on literature. Choose a variety of scripts adapted from literature. (Don't expect any direct excerpts unless the source is in the public domain.) I don't adapt copyrighted material; but, your students will probably see similarities to the literature referenced (e.g., Charlotte's Web and our script "This Little Piggie Loves Jokes). How about compare and contrast lessons?
Click on a Readers Theater script title below to read an excerpt from the script and to access the printable PDF (complete with annotated curriculum links for easy lesson plans).
IMPORTANT: Most of our scripts are available to our paying Script Buffet Club members only. Each one pays a little and reaps a lot. :)
