Humorous Scripts, Grades 3—5

Motivate your students with humorous Readers Theater scripts.  Your students will have fun while building important life skills (e.g., confidence speaking in front of a group, teamwork, focus, and fluency).  Choose scripts related to a specific subject (e.g., health, history) or fun stories to read aloud from our growing buffet of scripts.  Many of our scripts have humorous elements, but may not be listed below.  

***Consider having students create their own short, two-part humorous Readers Theater scripts with knock knock jokes!  ;)

Click on a Readers Theater script title below to read an excerpt from the script and access the printable PDF (complete with annotated curriculum links for easy lesson plans).

IMPORTANT:  Most of our scripts are available to our paying Script Buffet Club members only.  Each one pays a little and reaps a lot.  :)
