Listen to 'The Day the Crayons Quit' by Drew Daywalt

We hope that you enjoyed listening to this story. Do you think that the crayons were right to quit? Which crayon do you feel most sorry for?

 

Drew Daywalt chose his vocabulary carefully to create the personalities of his characters. Why do you think some words have been underlined or written in capital letters?

 

Today, we would like you to think about why the crayons are unhappy. Complete the table, telling us why each crayon is unhappy and which words or phrases tell you this. We have already filled out how red crayon is feeling as an example. We have added a PowerPoint with each letter on for you to look at.

 

Remember to choose the star level that you are most confident with.

 

Challenge

We have added a PowerPoint with each letter from the story. Can you read the letters out loud in the way you think each character would speak? Think about how you will change your tone and expression when words have been underlined or written in capitals.

 

We would love to see videos of your performances and even your outtakes too!

YouTubers and Vloggers make it look so easy! We thought we’d share our outtakes with you.
