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 Wish by Barbara O'Connor. The packet includes 20 printable comprehension sheets (one for each chapter). Each page includes the following categories: vivid vocabulary, comprehension check, picked passage, link to literature, story sketches, test taking, and swift summary. The questions are higher level thinking and common core aligned. Answer key is included at the end.
Also included in my Wish Novel Unit

Feedback from happy educators who have purchased this Novel Unit:
"WOW!!! An amazing resource to have. It helped take the work out of creating questions. Now I can add or omit based on my students' abilities. THANK YOU!!!"
"I had a special ed student that desperately wanted to read the book Wish even though she had language deficits that made reading at this level difficult for her. After much hemming and hawing, I let her check out the book on the condition that she fill out this comprehension packet as she completed each chapter. It took her close to two months but she rose to the challenge. She finished both the book and the packet and she came away with a much better understanding of the story than if she had tried to tackle the book by herself. It was a really well put together resource that allowed me to monitor her comprehension of the text and track her progress. "
