Holiday Scripts Make Reading Fun!November 7th, 2014
How Reader's Theater Scripts are Perfect for the Upcoming Season
Holiday Reader’s Theater Scripts from Lois Walker’s Scripts for School are a wonderful way to engage young readers. Rather than feeling intimidated or bored by a book, students participate in fun, interactive script reading, many of which feature drawing, hand puppets, and personalized references to students’particular schools.
The holidays are a great time to give reader’s theater scripts a try. Not only do most students love the chance to spend some time reading about the fun of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, these scripts also make perfect performances for holiday assemblies and concerts.
Holiday scripts are available for readers of different ages and skill levels. Some are designed for young readers to read in conjunction with teacher narrators or older readers, creating an enjoyable, interactive performance.
During Thanksgiving, scripts like A Thanksgiving Surprise bring younger and older students together to enjoy the holiday in script form.
Students can dress up in their ghoulish Halloween finest while reading scripts like A Fashionable Ghost, or learn the origins of Halloween, optionally set to the tune of traditional Irish songs.
Christmas brings with it many opportunities for performances, for parents and family members, for classmates, or for the whole school at a holiday assembly. Readers enjoy the fun of the holidays, and the excitement of public performing, while learning valuable literacy skills.
Scripts for Schools offers easy browsing of its library, based on themes, so teachers can find holiday-centric reader’s theater play scripts quickly. Teacher Theme Packages make it even easier —scripts are already arranged by category, available at a special price. The ability to immediately download scripts allows staff to get students reading right away, with no shipping wait time or cost.
