The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt is such a cute story about a group of crayons who one day decide to quit! Each crayon writes a letter to their owner, Duncan, explaining why they quit. Some crayons feel overworked, some feel neglected. The story is creative and entertaining. It has limitless opportunities for sparking imagination.
This The Day the Crayons Quit lapbook is simple to put together. The PDF contains everything you need for this, including full directions. You can print it on Astrobrights colored paper for instant color, or print on white paper and color it in with your favorite Crayons. (Crayola’s Twistables Crayons are great for longevity!)
This lapbook comes with a fun cover that students can cut into two and put on the front of their lapook.
If you’re using white paper, color each of the envelopes and items. I’ve found it’s easier to color them in before cutting. Then, cut out the envelopes and items on the solid lines.
Fold along the dotted lines. Glue the envelopes around your file folder. Match the items with each crayon, using the book as a guide!
On the left side, have students cut out the “What Can Each Crayon Draw?” box. In the second box, have students write their favorite color and something they enjoy coloring with that color!
