Our Tall Tales unit is a unique way of introducing students to some of the most interesting characters in the world. The tall tales genre was popularized in North America in the 1820's. Readers Theatre is a unique and fresh way of introducing students to a number of delightful plays that have been passed down from generation to generation for centuries. They can also serve as a useful tool for developing a student's oral reading and comprehension skills. Readers Theatre calls upon the students to utilize their voices, facial expressions, and hand gestures to interpret the characters in the scripts. This Theatre & Folktales lesson provides a teacher and student section with a variety of scripts, creative writing activities, crossword, word search and answer key to create a well-rounded lesson plan.

Loved it! Just what I was looking for.
We did these as mini-plays in y 6th grade reading class. I loved their questions about the characters, they said so they could act them out better. Such fun!
My students loved performing these. The extra information and practice pages for each are a bonus!!
My fourth graders loved these plays, even on the last day of school! I am looking forward to using these plays next year as well.
