How and Why Stories for Readers Theatre
Teacher Ideas Press
How did the bee get his bumble? How do birds get their feathers? Why is the bluebird blue? Curious first through fifth graders want to know how and why things happen! Judy Wolfman has created 40 Readers Theatre scripts based on imaginative and creative porquoi stories that stem from multicultural folktales as well as Native American Indian legends that attempt to give the answers to these how and why questions. An introduction explains what Readers Theatre is, where, and when it may be used, and suggestions for using it. The 40 scripts are short, with appropriate vocabulary and sentence structure for young readers.
