What Does the Box Say?

Have you heard about the book The Day the Crayons Quit?

It's the cutest little book written from the voice of the crayons. Each crayon writes a letter to a boy explaining why they have had enough and want to quit working for him.

There is the greatest video of the illustrator Oliver Jeffers here on You Tube. Check out his website here.

He also has a fun interactive story app that he has written and illustrated called The Heart and the Bottle.

I'm going to use the book The Day the Crayons Quit as a mentor text Writing Lesson to make this fun iPad project
 a talking crayon box project using the free app Chatterpix Kids.

Step by step video instructions on making this fun project are included in one of my newest iPad Lessons set. Students can follow along on their iPad with me on a video that walks them through everything they need to do. All you need to do is download the free app and copy the paper Brainstorming and Letter writing template sheets. Also included are lesson templates for students to create lots of other talking school supplies. There are QR codes to scan the video instructions so students can work on this independently at a Writing Station while you are busy teaching other students.
Need a grade? There are also rubrics so students can evaluate themselves and then teachers can give a final grade.

So do you want your students to make a fun talking school supply?

Check my lesson out here.
