Using the text entitled "The Day the Crayons Quit" by Drew Daywalt, your students will be asked to take part in writing a letter to you assuming the persona of one of their overworked crayons.
In this award winning picture book, the author tells the story of a little boy's box of crayons and their boycott. Overworked, underused, misused and abused these crayons creatively state their case to their owner, the little boy.
Included in this packet is a blank letter to be filled in and two student sample letters. Also included is an example of a cover that you can create to make this a class book.
NOTE: You must purchase the picture book in order to complete this writing assignment.
