Readers Theater – Play Writing Template

Free | 2 pages|Grades: 2 - 6

A template for students to use when writing their own Readers Theater script.

Use this template when teaching your students about the drama text structure.

Students have a place to write the title of their play, the characters, the setting, and then the dialogue itself. Depending on the length of the play, students may need multiple copies of page 2.

This activity works great when used as a reading center or writing center activity.
