PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

*This writing activity is based on the book, The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt.

*In this activity, students select a crayon color and write a friendly letter from the point of the view of the crayon.

*Students list 10 items that come in that particular color to include in the rough draft copy.

*As the character of the crayon, the student writes a letter to a person explaining why he/she (the crayon) is annoyed by always having to color particular items and persuading the person to give the crayon a much needed "break."

*Extension activity: Students can then make a crayon character with facial features using 12 X 18 construction paper. Sample crayons character images are included.

This is a fun writing activity for students in grades 2-5!

May your students write many colorful stories!
