Product Description
To go along with the Persuasive Writing Unit I read the book "The Day the Crayons Quit" by Drew Daywelt. Afterwards we discussed what each crayon was persuading Duncan (the boy in the book) to do, and what reasons they gave for it.

To change it up a bit, I had the students think of items that would want to quit them. They brainstormed all kinds of items... a lunchbox, bed, alarm clock, erasers, etc. They have to pick one item, and decide what they are persuading the reader to do. It could be that the item is overused and needs a break or that the item wants to be used for other things, the list goes on. This organizer helps both the students and the teacher know that they have everything that they need planned for. Then, they can use this to write their rough draft persuasive letter/writing.
