Silly Salamanders and Other Slightly Stupid Stuff for Readers Theatre.
Fredericks, Anthony D.
This book contains more than two dozen reader's theater scripts to entertain and amuse those in the classroom or library. The scripts in the book--all are reproducible--can help nurture student language arts skills and the power of the imagination with their fractured "takes" on fairy tales and their twisted legends. Designed to re-energize the reading and writing curricula, this humorous collection of scripts educates and entertains. Performance guidelines and numerous tips and ideas for using reader's theater extend language learning. Appended are: an extensive bibliography selected for further reading, more ideas, and a resource list. (NKA)
