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.
This is a Comprehension Packet designed for the novel The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo. The packet includes 18 printable comprehension sheets (covering the entire book).

Feedback from happy educators who have purchased this Novel Unit:
"The students use this in their book clubs and they love it. They even ask to do an extra book club so that they can keep working on their projects."
"Before I pick a novel I see if you have a packet to go along with it! I have bought many other packets and while they are cute and visually appealing they don't have much content. You cover so many standard and all in one page I love it! Thank you for creating these!"
"Wonderful resource for the book."
