The Crayon Box That Talked Packet

I love the book The Crayon Box That Talked by Shane DeRolf because it can be used to teach so many things.  The book has rhyming words, color words, and is a great for story sequencing.  You can also teach about working together and friendship. 

This is a FREE 20 slide download!  I created rhyming cards, story sequencing cards, an independent sequencing page and a color activity.  I also made a page for the students to use their own crayons to create a picture.

  11. Annie, Your work is first rate and I love the fact that you are still contributing even though you are not able to be in a classroom full time. On your sequencing sheet I did reverse the first and second boxes. I felt like the story talked about the crayons not getting along before the girl bought the box. Just a suggestion.
