The Day the Crayons Quit

About 4 months ago I started creating activities to go with one of my favorite read alouds ... The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt.  Now that school's out I've had a chance to put the activities into a learning pack. :)

Although this started as a small unit it ended up being 80 pages!

Inside you'll find:
opinion writing
persuasive writing
scrambled color words
point of view
character traits
using color
creating a new character
alphabetical order
writing craftivity
teaching tools
writing pages
and ... I added a place value mystery picture because my students can't get enough of them!

As you can see... this unit is jam packed!

Don't have the book on hand?  Here's a link to a read aloud on YouTube by The Storybook Factory.

You can find this learning pack HERE in my TPT store.  As always, the first 3 people who leave a comment with their email will get a copy!

Did I mention who I spent my Saturday evening with???  None other than Blake Shelton!  His show was FANTASTIC!!!!! 

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and I hope to be back soon with more of my half finished products! :)
