Holiday, Season, and Event Scripts, Grades 3—5

Make holidays special with a variety of Readers Theater scripts.  Make more memories with Readers Theater related to the seasons or current events (e.g., Fall, Back-to-School...).  WARNING:  Your students will ask for more Readers Theater scripts.  

Why not reap the benefits of Readers Theater by overlapping Readers Theater with different subjects (e.g., health, history, science...)?

Click on a Readers Theater script title below to read an excerpt from the scripts and access the printable PDF (complete with annotated curriculum links for easy lesson plans).

IMPORTANT:  Most of the Holiday scripts are free. Most of our seasonal and event related scripts are only available to our paying Script Buffet Club members.  Each one pays a little and reaps a lot.  :)
