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: The War with Grandpa is a story about a young boy and his grandfather at odds. 10-year-old Peter Stokes loves his grandfather and is excited to learn that he will be coming to live with the family. That is, until he learns that grandpa will be taking over Peter's bedroom. Peter's two best friends encourage Peter to stand his ground and do something about this injustice. Peter soon declares war on his grandfather, who proves to be an even match. The two attack and counterattack each other until escalations lead to one finally surrendering. The War with Grandpa is a gripping story about intergenerational family relationships. All of our content is aligned to your State Standards and are written to Bloom's Taxonomy.
