THE THING THAT GLOWS IN THE DARK - YOUNGER READERS
Readers Theater Scripts
They call the dog (the dog named Rags, the dog with the tail that always wags) and the cat (the cat named Scat, the cat who always smells a rat) and all head off to meet THE THING THAT GLOWS IN THE DARK!!!
Teacher narrates and assigned readers recite the many simple lines which are repeated again and again throughout the tale. Readers and listeners alike join in on the "Trick or Treat" chorus. Simple shapes are drawn on blackboard or display pad as the story unfolds. Scat the cat solves the mystery and the finished drawing shows our dreaded "THING!" It's a jack-o-lantern, of course.
Readers: Teacher or older reader narrates, 17 selected readers have short easy-reader lines, and there is an opportunity for whole class to participate in unison, if desired.
Script Length: 13 Pages
