When crayons get cranky, look out! “The Day the Crayons Quit” 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! Max Learner’s text-dependent questions (TDQs), written specifically for this book, teach close reading by guiding even the youngest students back into the text for the answers. Sample answers are included on our TDQ card for your reference as you guide discussion. Max has done all the work, so you don’t have to! Extend your lesson with our no-prep, visually appealing, and fun worksheets that reinforce close-reading.
All of our “Max Learner Book Detective” products help teach the Common Core reading standards by capturing the attention and imagination of primary students with read-aloud stories teachers love! Kids are excited about “solving the mysteries hidden inside of books”! Our No-Prep text-dependent question (TDQ) cards help teachers guide students to the heart of each story, where the central message lives. Many of our single books and collections include no-prep reproducible worksheets too! Use them for independent or partner work after your read-aloud time. Great for guest teachers, too! “Close reading” is fun for everyone with Max Learner!
