A Vegetable Valentine (Younger Readers)
Choral Reading Scripts
This Valentine script was inspired by the 6-line poem above. It was found on the Internet and the author is unknown. Our script is a much expanded version, and includes 18 garden plants in a completely new read-aloud story-poem. Most of the plants named can be found in the vegetable garden including sage (a plant leaf used for seasoning). However, there is one imposter! The cantaloupe is mentioned, and it is a fruit. You might ask your students to identify the one non-vegetable in the group.
Readers: 6 SOLO READERS, ALL GIRLS, ALL BOYS, and ALL.
Script Length: 4 pages
