Everyday Life Scripts, Grades 3—5

Why do we have a category of scripts called "Everday Life"?  One of our ESL and ELL teachers requested this category years ago to help her non-native English speakers learn English.  So, invite your ESL, ELL, or other students to enjoy "Everyday Life" Readers Theater.  Many of the stories are fiction, but they are often based on real life.  If you're a member of our Script Buffet Club you may suggest future script ideas.


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