After reading ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ by Drew Daywalt, the students need to decide which crayon colour is the best and write a letter to Duncan (the owner of the crayons) to convince him that their crayon colour is in fact the best!
The persuasive writing structure is modelled first using the hamburger model. The students then use the letter writing templates (either blank or lined) to compose their letter.
After the writing is complete they can decorate their own crayon in their chosen colour and give him arms, legs and a face. They can also write on the placard.
Some examples are attached.
Included in pack:
· Lined letter writing pages
· Blank letter writing pages
· Hamburger writing model with an example letter written in the sections.
· Crayon and placard template
