PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Synopsis: Percy Jackson is an ordinary kid in an ordinary private school on an ordinary field trip, except none of what happens is ordinary. Through a series of strange events Percy learns he is a half-blood hero. He, like other half-bloods, goes to Camp Half-blood to learn their skills to become heroes.

Once there, it is discovered that someone has stolen Zeus�s lightning bolt, his source of incredible power. Zeus thinks it is Percy and he must go on a quest to prove his innocence and find the true thief. This is an adventure of mythological proportions!!

This print and use workbook is a child-directed literature study that requires no teacher or parental prep time.

The format is an exciting new approach to studying literature. Each page engages the student in many interesting activities. Children will explore new vocabulary in its context and answer questions that involve them in the story. Learners reflect on their own experiences to better understand those of the characters. This process ensures full comprehension of the novel. Additional activities involve illustrating, sequencing, analyzing characters, and point of view.

The literature study concludes with an organized and detailed book summary. A simple rubric is included for grading the book summary.

Get involved with the story and become a better reader.

This assignment might be too lengthy for elementary school levels. But truly spot on for middle school and higher. I enjoyed seeing my child challenged to complete the packet in a timed period. He was enthusiastic, partially because of the subject material (my son is a dyslexic teenager) and finds it difficult to be inspired to read. He worked on it daily and did a great job. He's looking forward to reading the other books in the series and knows that he can perform the workbook tasks without dread.
On  February 17, 2011New Learning Publishing answered:
Thank you very much for your kind words. I am very glad to see your son has responded so positively to our work. I think it is really neat that he finds a connection with Percy and their dyslexia. After teaching for so many years, it never ceases to amaze me what specific details a student is going to find as the one that gets them involved in a story. Please tell your son I am very proud of him.
