The Emperor's New Clothes: Folk and Fairy Tales

Paperback (Teacher Created Materials July 10, 2008) , 1 edition
A vain emperor is put in an embarrassing situation when two tricky tailors take advantage of his vanity and make him clothes that are supposedly only visible to people who are fit for their jobs. Unwilling to look incapable by admitting that he sees nothing, he walks in a parade in just his underwear! Luckily, a bold child tells the truth about the emperor's new clothes. This script features roles written to match different reading levels, supporting differentiation and English language learner strategies. By utilizing differentiation strategies, teachers can assign specific roles to their readers based on everyone's current reading level. This feature allows everyone to get involved in the same activity and feel successful! All readers can gain confidence in their reading fluency through performance, regardless of their current reading ability. While performing with others, students will practice interacting cooperatively, reading aloud, and using expressive voices and gestures to better tell the story. This script also features an accompanying poem and song to give readers additional fluency practice. This dynamic, colorful script is the perfect tool for a classroom of diverse readers. It will surely get everyone participating and confidently practicing fluency!About Shell Education Rachelle Cracchiolo started the company with a friend and fellow teacher.

What began as a hobby, selling lesson plans to local stores, became a part-time job after a full day of teaching, and eventually blossomed into Teacher Created Materials. The story continued in 2004 with the launch of Shell Education and the introduction of professional resources and classroom application books designed to support Teacher Created Materials curriculum resources.
