A couple of weeks ago, I posted briefly about a new book I discovered in the Scholastic Book Order - The Day the Crayons Quit. You can view that original post by clicking HERE.
We've spent time on letter writing, point of view/perspective, and the writing trait "voice" in some of our writing lessons lately. The kids were asked to think about their own crayon box and choose a crayon color. Their job was to think about that crayon in the context of their own box, consider what it was typically used for, how it would feel, and what it would want from its owner. Next, we shifted our perspectives, wrote letters as the crayons, and created a book-inspired picture to accompany each writing piece.
Here are a couple of early examples of what my students created:
