The Chicken Riddle educational play was written for a kindergarten and first grade summer camp.  Children love stories that are familiar.  This reader's theater script helps engage them.  In fact, people of all ages learn better when the information is relevant and interesting.

In addition to building reading skills and fluency, this educational play develops speech skills at critical ages during a child's development. Educational script reinforces prekindergarten through first grade sight words.  It models how exclamation marks are used to show extreme emotion.  The rhyming names and animal characters involve children in developing listening and speaking skills. Repetitive lines encourage children to become confident readers.
