Description

Have you read the picture book The Day the Crayons Quit? It may just be one of my new favorite read alouds that lets students understand the funny perspectives of crayons. I loved this book so much, I created an even FUNNIER version you will LOVE using with your BIG KIDS in grades 4-8.

This The Day the Colored Pencils Resigned Reader's Theater and Reading Literature Toolkit includes:

• 3-page, 12-character script

• context clue word work

• reader response questions

• 3-post-reading journal prompts

• a project for students to create

• an answer key, directions for use, and CCSS covered

Estimated Lexile Level: 920L

Summary: Brennan is a student that is putting forth minimal effort into his art project. His colored pencils take notice and decide that enough is enough, either he put forth more effort and consider their suggestions, or they may not return.

Your students will have a BLAST acting out this hilarious script. For extra practice, read the picture book The Day the Crayons Quit in order to have students compare and contrast similar texts.
