When crayons get cranky, look out! The Day the Crayons Quit, by Drew Daywalt, is a super fun read-aloud for young learners, and now you can use it to teach the Common Core State Standards for Reading Literature 1, 2, 3, and 7! Our Text-Dependent Questions, written specifically for this book, help you model close reading by guiding students back into the text for the answers. Sample answers are included for your reference. Follow up your read aloud with the included Close Reading activity which directs students back into the text to correctly match the pictures to the colors Duncan used in the story. Culminate your lesson by having children draw their own picture with eight colors and then write a letter to their crayons telling them about it! Close reading is FUN with Max Learner Book Detective!
