Item description

This grades 3-4 Readers’ Theater fun script will give your students high interest practice in reading aloud, inferencing, making predictions and drawing conclusions. If you have a class that dislikes anything they perceive as “babyish”, this amusing script with its relevant modern characters will get a thumbs-up! The Mystery of the Haunted House will entertain your students and require them to perform inference tasks to solve three major clues. The script is intended for about 9 students but the number of readers can easily be contracted or expanded depending on how many groups you wish to have.

This funny and engaging story revolves around the claim that a house is haunted. A boy seeking to raise money for a fashionable new pair of basketball shoes is trying to pull a scam. Only the teamwork of 10 year old twins (a sister and brother) can solve the clues to reveal the scheme. Your students will enjoy testing their wits against those of the characters! Hints for you to give students who need more help are included. This script is based on a grade 5-8 resource, but it contains less slang, shorter sentences, less complex vocabulary and only three puzzles to work through, rather than the four given in the middle school version. If you have a gifted and talented grade 3-4 group, you might wish to use this version instead: READERS’ THEATER BRAIN TEASER SCARY MYSTERY SCRIPT

Students have to discuss and write on six topics, complete a journal entry, and also design a ‘spot the difference’ drawing for a fellow student. The resource ends with two pages of spooky jokes. These jokes have been separated from their punchlines. Students have to use their comprehension skills to reunite the jokes and answers.

Question sheets and answers are included.
