The roles in this script match different reading levels, enabling teachers to use differentiation and English language learner strategies in their instruction. These strategies allow all students to engage in the same activity, regardless of their current reading level, as they gain confidence in their reading fluency.
Students will also practice reading aloud, interacting cooperatively, and using expressive voices and gestures while performing the story together. An accompanying poem and song give readers additional resources to practice fluency. This dynamic script is the perfect tool to engage a classroom of varied readers.
