ReadersTheaterAllYearBugStraight Scripture.  Divided for devotions.  Nothing funny.  Nothing elaborate. Simply thankfulness.  Written for a family with 4 children, the parts could be switched out many ways.  One teacher adapted it for a School Program.  We have her version online as a download, too.  The curriculum links at the end of the script should help reinforce the words of this popular Psalm.  

TIME: about 1 1/2 minutes  CAST: 6+  TONE:  serious and thankful   READABILITY: Grade 2.0, 4.8 (Maxine's adapted version)

***Note the testimony after the link and one teacher's adaptation of the psalm for a school program.  The link to Maxine's school program version of Psalm 136 is available under her lovely testimony.

Here is a brief excerpt from our free Readers Theater adaptation of Psalm 136:

One Teacher's Testimony and Ideas for This Script:


"Carole,  We took your Reader's Theater script on Psalm 136 and the kids and teachers added things they were particularly thankful for.  We even gave grandparents some things to read, as well.  We ran off a bunch of copies and passed them out to our audience at the Graduation and Celebration Program at the end of the year, and THIS was how we ended our time together--being thankful to God, together!  THANK YOU!  It was a real blessing to all..."
