English: Be Unique

Research what the word 'persuade' means.

How the crayons try to persuade their owner in this book.


What happens if we don't look after our equipment (glue sticks, pens, felt tips, whiteboard pens)? Watch the video The day the crayons came home and how they were mistreated. 


Task: Think about resources in the classroom. What happens to the resources in our trays? (pencils, crayons, glue sticks, WB pens).

Look at the pictures of items that have been mistreated and write next to the pictures what has happened to them (they don’t work anymore – dried put, ran out of ink and explain why they don’t work anymore). Glue: If glue sticks lose their lids they will dry out.
