Long ago, the monkeys of Japan loved to play all year long, except in winter. The winters were very cold, the trees were bare, and everything was covered in snow and ice. On a cold winter day, they discovered something amazing that changed how they survived the winters.

This entertaining script includes six roles that are written at varying reading levels, supporting differentiation and English language learner strategies. Teachers can implement these strategies to assign roles to students based on their individual reading levels. All students will gain confidence and feel successful while building fluency, regardless of their current reading ability.

Students will practice valuable skills like interacting cooperatively, reading aloud, and using expressive voices and gestures. This script also features a song and poem relating to the story. All the features in this dynamic, leveled script make it a great resource for the classroom.
