I’m excited to share with you my 22nd TPT product creation…a holiday reader’s theater for the middle grades with both reader response questions and a snowflake craftivity that we created with our students last school year.
This reader’s theater once again features 6th grade students-I can’t help it, I adore teaching this age. I also feel like I have so many stories to tell after spending so much time with them. Once again, they find themselves in some hot water due to some questionable behavior in music class when a sub is present for the day jeopardizing the holiday musical. Your students will love playing the roles of this 13-character cast.
If you are looking for some fluency and comprehension fun for your students, be sure to check it out!
Full Product Description:
The Show Must Go On is a middle grades reader’s theater that your students will love to perform. It is about a group of 6th grade students that are ready to “graduate” from Merna Elementary. During their last day of school before the graduation ceremony they reflect/flashback to a time in the year when they ran into a bit of a problem during the year based on one student’s silly actions. The silly actions of this student put the holiday musical performance in jeopardy.
The students work together to come up with a solution so the performance can go on as planned. This high-interest, realistic fiction reader’s theater will have your students laughing out loud at the thoughts and actions of the 13-character cast.
This Christmas reader’s theater resource includes:
– 13-charater cast
– 7-page script
– word work using context clues
– 4 reader response questions
– 2 journal topics
– Snowflake Craftivity your students will love making with just cotton swabs, glue, and glitter
– Summary Work
I hope everyone is staying positive as we near the finish line of 2020! If this year has taught me anything it is flexibility. My team has had to be especially creative navigating both in-person and remote learners. If you are looking for December ELA ideas, I shared a few of my favorites in this blog post.
