Description
Act out the story of a mischievous boy who is responsible for herding the sheep and keeping them safe from a nearby wolf. He gets bored at work and tricks his family, crying, "Wolf!" even though the wolf is not there. Since his family gets angry that he continues to lie, he loses their trust. When the wolf really does arrive, no one believes him. Will he be able to save himself and the sheep from the wolf and learn his lesson? The six roles in this script are written at different reading levels, supporting differentiation and English language learner strategies. Teachers can easily implement these strategies by assigning specific roles to their students in a way that best accommodates readers of all levels. All students can participate in this activity, helping them gain confidence and feel successful while building fluency! An accompanying song and poem about the garden gives readers exciting, additional opportunities to engage in the story and build fluency. Students will also practice other important skills like reading aloud, interacting cooperatively, and using expressive voices and gestures while performing this story together. All of the features in this colorful script make it the perfect tool for a diverse classroom of learners to practice repeated reading and fluency!
