Readers Theater at the Library January Session

New activity at the library to learn and have fun at the same time using dramatic reading of scripts based on children’s stories. Kids will hear the story, do some drama exercises, and practice reading the scripts with intonation and expression.

This activity is for 9 to 12 years-old (4º-6º Primaria) with a high-intermediate or advance English level. It will be held one Friday per month at 18:00, starting on October and finishing in June.

Readers’ Theater will be led by Chloe and Christine, two teachers from the International Institute English program.

The activity forms part of the library services for library members. They will need to show their library card and send an e-mail to confirming their participation in the activity any time from the first day of the month and up to the week of the Readers Theater session.

Non-members who want to participate have a symbolic associated cost of 3€ per child for each session. The tickets can be obtained at the library check-out desk the same week of the session up until 15 minutes before the beginning of the activity.

January script around the book:

“A Bad Case of Stripes” by David Shannon

Friday, January 18th 2013 at 18 h.


Camilla Cream loves lima beans, but she never eats them. Why? Because the other kids in her school don’t like them. And Camilla Cream is very, very worried about what other people think of her. In fact, she’s so worried that she’s about to break out in…a bad case of stripes!

A Camila Cream le encantan las semillas de lima pero nunca las come. ¿Por qué? porque a los otros niños de su escuela no les gustan y a Camila le preocupa mucho lo que piensen de ella los demás. En realidad está tan preocupada que está a punto de convertirse en un….¡caso grave de rayitis!
