Just Mrs. Jones Comprehension Packets 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 are COMMON CORE aligned. I use the CCSS standards and CCSS question stems as I write them.

Feedback from happy educators who have purchased this Novel Unit:
"Very thoughtful design of the questions, thank you."
"The best as always!"
"I love this packet! It does a great job hitting on the skills that the students really need to know without out all of the frivolous clipart and ink wasting that a lot of similar options have. I also love the consistency of the types of questions. It will be great to not have to explain the questions before each and every reading. I have never caved and bought anything on TPT so you are my first and I'm so glad I bought this packet."
