This Powerpoint file includes a read-aloud lesson for the popular picture book The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt. In the lesson students will learn about robust vocabulary from the story and what it means to "persuade". At the end of the lesson you will find three different writing extension activity printables that can be completed whole-group or independently.
In addition to the lesson, I have included a Reader's Theater script to use with the story. Students love performing reader's theater and reluctant readers can shine with this activity. Students will enjoy the expression they'll get to use when acting out these irritable characters! The script includes 39 speaking parts but could easily be adapted/edited to include more or less speakers.
In case you don't have a copy of this text, I have included a book video/read aloud in the Powerpoint so students can see/hear the book on the big screen! (aka your smartboard or projector).
