This digital choice board for Google Slides and SeeSaw provides six different engaging and interactive activities to go along with the book The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt. Comes with a preloaded link to save directly to your SeeSaw library.
Now comes with print versions of the activities.
A free Google account is needed to access this activity. It can be shared through Google Classroom or other learning platform. These are digital activities. Students will need access to an internet enabled device.
Overview of the activities
- Activity 1: students will choose one of the feelings from the list and share about a time they felt that way. The feelings are ones the crayons feel in the book. They can share it through Google Classroom, record a short video or draw/write about it.
- Activity 2: students will sequence the story events
- Activity 3: students will complete a word search activity and a crossword puzzle. The puzzles are from the website RIF (reading is fundamental).
- Activity 4: will think about each crayon from the book. They will move the adjective that best describes each crayon.
- Slide 5: Students will watch a short video about how crayons are made.
- Slide 6: students will put the color words in ABC order.
Print activites are very similar but not identical
UPDATED: I added an editable Google slide file. The editable Google slides file will let you edit SOME of the text on the slides. I can not offer a full editable product due to copyright restrictions.
What is editable:
- I removed the activity number from each slide. You will only see the book title at the top of the slide. If you only want to give your students two slides to complete, now they won’t be confused by seeing a slide that has a 5 on it (for example). If you want to add an activity number to the slide you can do so. Just insert a text box wherever you want.
- The first activity tells students to share something to Google Classroom or Seesaw. These instructions can be deleted completely. You can delete the slide altogether or add your own activity and directions to this slide.
- Depending on the activity you are using, there may be other text that you can edit. Please see the teacher directions in the notes section at the bottom of every slide for more information. You will also need to delete these instructions before you share it with your students.
