Jan Brett's The Umbrella

Last year we decided to do  a week long author study on Jan Brett. We knew we wanted to complete the unit with a each class performing a reader's theater for the other two classes. I decided to read The Umbrella since it would integrate with our plants unit in the spring. I wrote a reader's theater for the book and have included a link to it on Jan Brett's website. I tried to retell her story using sight words and vocabulary that would be appropriate for each reading level in first grade. Hope you are able to use it in your classroom.
