The Day the Crayons Quit

This morning after the assembly Ms. Lirenman shared the book The Day the Crayons Quit.  It's a collection of letters written by the different crayons in a crayon box.  The letters are written to Duncan, the owner of the crayons.  As she read the book we stopped to think and share what we though the next letter might say, and why.  We used the knowledge of how we use crayons to come up with our predictions.  Some of the crayon's letters surprised us while others didn't.  Once Ms. Lirenman finished reading us the book she asked us to write letters back to the crayons.  We each picked colours and began writing.  Some of us wrote on big paper and some of us wrote on small paper.  We all wrote on what and where we wanted to. Ms. Lirenman gives us a lot of choices which we love.  This is what we looked like busy writing.


Here are some of our letters. If you click on the names underneath the letters you can hear us read our letters too you.






We strongly encourage you to check out the rest of our  blogs too.

  1. Thank you for sharing your writing with us! I love that book too! Your letters are very insightful. I like the way you used the pen colour to write about the colour you were talking about. I just bought that book and can't wait to share it with my class!

  3. I enjoyed reading your replies to the crayons. Looks like there are many aspiring writers amongst you all. If you became a writer, what sort of stories would you write about?
