Description

In this State Standards-aligned Literature Kit™, we divide the novel by chapters or sections and feature reading comprehension and vocabulary questions. In every chapter, we include Before You Read and After You Read questions. The Before You Read activities prepare students for reading by setting a purpose for reading. They stimulate background knowledge and experience, and guide students to make connections between what they know and what they will learn. The After You Read activities check students' comprehension and extend their learning. Students are asked to give thoughtful consideration of the text through creative and evaluative short-answer questions and journal prompts. Also included are writing tasks, graphic organizers, comprehension quiz, test prep, word search, and crossword to further develop students' critical thinking and writing skills, and analysis of the text. About the Novel: Prince Brat and Jemmy are out on the loose! Jemmy, who once made a living catching rats in the sewers, is now living in the king’s castle as the whipping boy for Prince Horace, commonly known to the citizens of the kingdom as Prince Brat. Jemmy is punished in his place, for it is illegal to spank the heir. The two escape into the forest where they encounter two tough-talking cutthroats with "reserved seats in Hell", a dancing bear, and a hot-potato man. Misunderstandings, trickery, bullheadedness, and slow-turning cogs in villians' heads occur. Prince Brat begins to appreciate Jemmy’s courage and friendship and when the two eventually return to the castle, the prince has resolved to be a true friend to Jemmy and quit his spoiled, selfish ways. All of our content is aligned to your State Standards and are written to Bloom's Taxonomy.
