The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt

If you don’t have the book, click here for a video of the book being read.




Task 1 – Retell the story with a grown up and tell your grown up as much as you can remember about the story. Why are some crayons shorter than others? Which crayons seem happy and sad? Which crayon seems angry? Which one do you want to cheer up the most?


Task 2 – Pick and draw four of the crayons from the story and write how they feel in the story. For example: The purple crayon felt fed up because Duncan never coloured inside the lines. 

This can be completed on paper or on Purplemash here


Task 3 – Pick your favourite colour from the story and write sentences about what the colour is used for. Then write sentences to explain how that colour feels and why.

This can be completed on paper.


Task 4 – Can you write a list of all the emotions the crayons felt in the story and draw a face to show this?

This can be completed on paper or on Purplemash here


Task 5 – Can you write a letter to Duncan and pretend to be something else in his pencil case such as a rubber, sharpener, ruler and so on. Write to Duncan and tell him how you feel you have been treated. What could make you happier? Use the sentence starters below to help you.
