Product Description
The Whipping Boy Text Messaging Comprehension Activity. This is a 5 page reading comprehension activity that will work with any novel but is set up for the novel The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman. This activity will have your students send "text" messages to the author, a character in the story, a friend about a favorite part, and a teacher about what he/she liked about the story. I have found this to be a very enjoyable activity that encourages comprehension of the story.

This Newbery winning book is about an orphan named Jemmy. As the whipping boy, Jemmy must take the whippings for the royal heir to the king, Prince Brat. Jemmy plans to run away from the castle. Unfortunately Prince Brat beats him to it and takes Jemmy along on a journey- or does Jemmy take Prince Brat on a journey?

Included in the packet is a template cell phone for each activity, along with over 30 text abbreviations for the students to use.
