This book was suggested to me by a fellow blogger and I LOVED it!
It's letters from various colors of crayons with their feelings (ie-blue is used way to much and pink way too rarely). And peach, well, let's just say that was my kiddos' favorite one. I never thought about the crayon perspective before and I don't think my students have either. Now they literally apologize to their crayons if they break off their tip! :)
I asked them to write a letter to themselves (I covered their names) from a school supply other than a crayon. This is what they came up with:
From the folder-stop putting so much paper in me.
Pencil sharpener: this kid said he was going to throw me in the hallway-help me please friend.
Big eraser here-you never use me, please one time is enough.
Ruler: you never use me very much. I want you to use me often, from Ruler.
I know you don't use me, your teacher is not allowing markers.
It's me, glue stick. I hate gluing things, can you use me to write?
I love how their voice totally comes through! That's something we've been working on.
