Readers' Theatre in Kindergarten?

I really want to find a readers' theatre script to use during my literacy center block, but cannot find any age-appropriate scripts for kindergarten! Does anyone attempt readers' theatre in Kindergarten or am I being over-zealous? I have found a couple on starfall.com that could be read comfortably by my "higher" level group, but I really need something appropriate for mixed-ability groups.

Can anyone help? I want to implement new reading activities that encourage a love for reading in my classroom! I'm looking for something FREE.

I just posted the other day about reader's theater and this was a website a helpful teacher posted.
http://www.teachingheart.net/readerstheater.htm

It has a variety of scripts, many that should be appropriate for kindergarten.

I also found this site during a search. It has several good scripts as well.

www.timelessteacherstuff.com

Hope these help!

I am going to have to check those out, I wrote my own to Brown Bear, Brown Bear that my whole class can participate in and they can do on their own, but would like to have more.

I can never find good ones for the beginning of first either so I always write my own. Then I like them better anyways because they are on books the kids know. Also, because they are so short it takes very little time.

I couldn't open some of the links in the teachingheart website, but I'll try again later.

Thank you all for your input. I think that I will try to write my own version of a readers' theatre for the kids, based on books we've read thus far this year.

I desperately want to implement literacy activities that appeal to the students that do not seem as interested in learning to read as their peers. I have such a passion for reading...I would love to see the same passion come to fruition in all of my students! If you have any other suggestions that could help, please let me know.

Thanks again!

I tend to write my own simply because I can use the vocabulary and the use of HF words I want to strengthen. I can also make sure that they are age appropriate. Today we used The LIttle Red Hen as a reader's theater and they really enjoyed it.
