Scary Readers Theatre by Suzanne I. Barchers

Deliciously ghostly, startling, and downright scary scripts will make you and your students listen, ponder, shiver, chuckle, or even jump! Based on 30 folktales, myths, ghost stories, and legends, these reproducible scripts have been evaluated using the Flesch-Kincaid Readability Scale and range from second to fifth grade levels. Elementary, middle school, and chapter teachers will find them invaluable for enhancing the language arts program and for use with developing and remedial readers. An introduction provides everything you need to get started.
