The Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt

Lesson idea: Students write letters from the perspective of things that they have lost or ignored

Imagine you are another item in Duncan’s pencil case, e.g. a ruler, pencil sharpener, highlighter pen, biro.
Write a postcard to Duncan to add to the collection sent to him.
Think about:
What job did you originally have in the pencil case?
Did you enjoy your job?
Might you have any memorable stories to remind Duncan of?
What has happened to you since you were last with Duncan? E.g. Have you been travelling to any exciting places?
What might you like to ask Duncan now?
As if you are the ruler, pencil sharpener, highlighter etc. write your postcard to Duncan.
Rehearse each sentence out loud before you write to check it makes sense. Keep reading your work as you write to check for spelling and punctuation too. Send your finished postcard to your teacher! Your teacher could end up with a class set of postcards from various pencil case items!
