Easy to Read Mini-Books & Mini-Plays on Science & Math for Kids

15 Easy-to-Read Neighborhood & Community Mini-Book Plays by Sheryl Ann Crawford & Nancy I. Sanders

Posted on: March 26, 2010

Children love to point out their favorite places. They excitedly call  attention to everything from ice-cream shops to pet stores. The 15 mini-book plays in this book help children build important reading fluency skills and learn about neighborhoods and communities in a fun way!

To help you weave this collection into your curriculum, the plays have been grouped into three themes: Community Helpers, Places in the Neighborhood, and Neighborhood adventures.

In Many Ways to Get Around, students will read about different kinds of transportation an discover how people move from place to place within their communities. They’ll learn the many ways police officers help people in Friends We Can Call On.

Written for a variety of reading levels, the plays can easily be read and performed (without props!) to meet your instructional needs whether that be in public, private, or home-schools!

After reading the plays, use the Curriculum Connections on pages 6-12. These provide engaging extension activities that reinforce the social studies, math, and language arts skills and concepts you are teaching. In addition literature links are included for every mini-book play.

Some titles include: Mary Went to the Library, Health Care for Kids, Foods From Around the World, and The Firefighters.
