Act out the story of the hardworking Little Red Hen! She finds a grain of wheat and works to turn it into bread. None of the other animals help, but they all want to eat the bread in the end. She doesn't share with the lazy animals, teaching them they have to work for things. This script includes roles written at various reading levels, allowing teachers to implement differentiation and English language learner strategies into instruction. This feature allows teachers to assign each role based on their students' individual reading levels, encouraging everyone to get involved in the same activity. Whether students are struggling or proficient readers, they can all gain confidence in their reading fluency and feel successful. By performing together, students will also practice interacting cooperatively, reading aloud, and using expressive voices and gestures while storytelling. With an accompanying poem and song to give readers additional fluency practice, this script is a dynamic resource sure to engage a classroom of varied readers.
About Shell Education
Rachelle Cracchiolo started the company with a friend and fellow teacher. Both were eager to share their ideas and passion for education with other classroom leaders. 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. Today, Teacher Created Materials and Shell Education are two of the most recognized names in educational publishing around the world.
