Character Building Scripts, Grades K—2

Here's a growing list of positive character qualities or virtues that happen to be modeled by a character or characters in one or more of our scripts. Some characters reflect more than one character building quality, so you may find the same script listed in multiple categories.


Click on a Readers Theater script title below to read an excerpt from the script and access the printable PDF (complete with annotated curriculum links for easy lesson plans).  Or, click the sub-category to see a more limited selection of scripts based on specific topics.


IMPORTANT:  Most of our scripts are available to our paying Script Buffet Club members only.  Each one pays a little and reaps a lot.  ;)
