Just Mrs. Jones Novel Units are different because:
-I use as much printable space per page as possible. They’re attractive without wasting a lot of space on unnecessary graphics and margins.
-All my questions are SPECIFIC to the novel. Why pay for questions you could quickly write yourself like, “Tell about the main character” or “Predict what happens next?” My questions are unique.
-Students love them! Kids like to know what to expect, so consistency is a big plus. My students, other students in my school, and children of homeschool friends have all done these packets and actually enjoyed them!
-You’ll love the consistency too- exactly what you need for EVERY day you’ll teach this book without having to worry about what comes next.
-Finally, my Comprehension Packets and Final Tests are COMMON CORE aligned. I use the CCSS standards and CCSS question stems as I write them. The Quizzes focus more on basic comprehension so I can differentiate between which students can just comprehend the text and which students can take it to the next level.
