Updated on 16 September 2020


Theater is a fun, interactive way to help students improve their reading fluency and speaking skills. It also gives them a chance to work in groups and build their confidence. Pricked Pinkies presents an updated version of a well-known fairy tale. The script can be used for traditional Readers’ Theater, Adapted Readers’ Theater, or even puppetry. This guide includes each character’s ATOS reading level, ranging from 0 to 4.6, printable props, a Readers’ Theater Rules poster, and tips for Adapted Readers’ Theater props, makeup, and costumes—everything you need to enhance your Readers’ Theater production.
