PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

No student wants to follow up a chapter of Jake Drake Know-It-All with boring questions and answers.

Our solution? These comprehension activity printables. They’re aligned with the Common Core…beautifully illustrated…and will help your students to capture the very essence of Andrew Clement’s work.

This product includes a comprehension activity printable for each chapter:

Chapter 1 – “Flashbacks” – Students will summarize the chapter by recalling and recording Jake’s flashbacks

Chapter 2 - “Meet Mrs. Karp” – Students will identify and infer Mrs. Karp's character traits by citing text evidence.

Chapter 2 (bonus sheet) – “Meet Mr. Lenny Cordo” – Students will recognize and record the change that Mr. Cordo undergoes in the chapter by using text evidence.

Chapter 3 – “Contest Poster” – After reading chapter 3, students will skim and scan (through Chapter 2 and 3) to round up pertinent information in order to design a poster for the Despres Elementary Science Fair.

Chapter 4 – “Phil Willis – fierce or friendly?” – Students will make an inference to explain the title of the chapter, support an opinion question with evidence from the text, and highlight Willie’s character traits with evidence from the text.

Chapter 5 – “A Helping Hand” – Students will find and highlight details about Mr. Drake’s science fair ideas, infer the problem with his ideas, support an opinion question with details from the text, and infer information about the minor character, Abby.

Chapter 6 – “Serious Science” – Students will make science connections by coming up with their own science fair ideas, will put themselves in Jake’s shoes to decide what “junk” to keep, and will highlight the sequence of Jake’s actions in the chapter.

Chapter 7 – “Sophisticated Synonyms” – Students will study Andrew Clement’s word choice and redesign sentences with sophisticated synonyms.

Chapter 8 – “Characters with a Cause” – Students will study cause and effect, and highlight the many causes for the major event in the chapter.

Chapter 9 – “Dynamic Jake” – Student will learn about dynamic (or changing) characters, and highlight the changes Jake undergoes (along with the conflicts that causes the change).

Chapter 10 – “Prove It” – Students will use text evidence to support claims made about Willie and Mr. Drake.

Chapter 11 – “Last but not Least” – Students will compare and contrast Jake and Willie’s project with Kevin’s. They will also infer the theme(s) of the story.
