Short plays for grades 1-3

Our Short Plays Workbook is a collection of ten original plays with exercises for elementary students in grades 1-3.  The workbooks are intended for both classroom use and for independent study.

The plays are short, typically 3-5 pages (500 – 2,000 words) long and have between 10 and 25 speaking parts each.   Each play is followed by:

  • a parent/teacher page that lists questions before and after performing the play, words to preview, tips to help with the performance, and extended activities;

  • additional written exercises related to the play, the characters, setting, plot, theme, author’s purpose and style.

We believe that reading and / or performing plays is a fun and effective way for students to increase reading fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary development.  

The plays can also be performed in front of an audience.  Students can help with directing, props, costumes, scenery, sound effects, prompting and so on.

We have another collection of plays and activities for older students (grades 3-5), available here.
