Readers Theater Script

This week we are reading “The Rough Face Girl” by Rafe Martin for our readers theater. Today I read it to them while they read along, and then we chose parts. They were surprised that the older sister in this story is so mean to her younger sister-they said it was sad.

I think they now understand that a main character doesn’t always have the most speaking parts-that tends to be the narrator sometimes! 🙂

I have to say that readers theater is one activity that my 6th graders crave!!! They love doing them!! Now if I could just get that excitement to carry over to english!!!! 🙂

Here is a link to the script for “Rough Face Girl”:

This script can also be called “The Hidden One” and it is based on a book by Rafe Martin.
