Directly aligned to the common core standards, students will actively engage in dialogue that will provide a background for the cultural differences demonstrated in these 4 Cinderella Reader’s Theater scripts! In addition to a comparison chart, Venn diagram graphic organizer, and writing prompt activity, I provide 2 stories written on a middle fourth grade reading level, 1 story written at a modified level for struggling readers, and 1 story written with a longer script and enriched vocabulary to provide “stretch” for advanced readers. By providing more than 20 individualized parts on varying reading levels, ALL students will have a chance to practice fluency, use the included vocabulary words in context, and increase their basic knowledge of the common themes found in this popular story through a written comparison activity.
About the Seller
I currently teach an integrated 4th grade Language Arts and Social Studies class. Although I've been teaching for 20 years, this is only my second year with an integrated curriculum. I love it! I've traded both my social studies text and reading series books for rich literature, primary documents, hands on games & activities, reader's theaters, and close readings to meet and extend all of my language arts standards and social studies content. This connected approach to learning makes so much more sense to both my students and me! It is what has driven me to create so many of my own materials and resources. My hope is that it can benefit other teachers who are attempting this integrated way of teaching!
