Is Nick Allen a troublemaker? He really just likes to liven things up at school -- and he's always had plenty of great ideas. When Nick learns some interesting information about how words are created, suddenly he's got the inspiration for his best plan ever...the frindle. Who says a pen has to be called a pen? Why not call it a frindle? Things begin innocently enough as Nick gets his friends to use the new word. Then other people in town start saying frindle. Soon the school is in an uproar, and Nick has become a local hero. His teacher wants Nick to put an end to all this nonsense, but the funny thing is frindle doesn't belong to Nick anymore. The new word is spreading across the country, and there's nothing Nick can do to stop it.

Wer legt fest, was ein Wort bedeutet?: Nick ist ein kluger Lausbub und hat viele Tricks auf Lager, um Lehrpersonen vom Aufgabengeben abzuhalten. Doch bei der neuen Lehrerin der fünften Klasse versagen sie. So muss Nick selber einen Vortrag darüber halten, warum das Wörterbuch wichtig ist fürs Leben. Diese Aufgabe beschäftigt ihn: Wer bestimmt denn, was ein Wort bedeuten soll? Nick kommt auf die Idee, ein eigenes Wort zu erfinden. Anstatt Kugelschreiber oder Bleistift sagt er in Zukunft nur noch "Frindel". In kürzester Zeit setzt sich das Wort im ganzen Schulhaus durch. Gerade auch, weil die Lehrerin Mrs. Granger so dagegen ist. Die ganze Geschichte kommt in der Lokalzeitung und wahrhaftig auch im Fernsehen. Immer mehr Menschen übernehmen das Wort, viel Geld lässt sich mit dessen Vermarktung verdienen. Nach zehn Jahren erhält es seinen Platz im offiziellen Wörterbuch. Da erhält Nick einen Brief von seiner ehemaligen Lehrerin, der eine grosse Überraschung beinhaltet! Eine witzige Schulgeschichte, die zum Nachdenken über die Bedeutung von Wörtern anregt und darüber, was Sprache eigentlich ist. Ab 10 Jahren, gut, Irene Beglinger-Flückiger.

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: Frindle is the story of a clever, time-wasting schemer’s innovative plan to create his own word for the dictionary. Ten-year-old Nick Allen has a reputation for developing ingenious plans that distract teachers. For the first time ever, his diversions fail to create the desired results in Mrs. Granger’s fifth grade language arts class. Instead of distracting her, he ends up with an extra assignment and oral presentation on how new entries are added to the dictionary. Surprisingly, the boring assignment leads to Nick’s most clever idea ever when he decides to create his own new word - frindle. Nick recruits five fellow students to support his efforts in changing the name of pen to frindle. Their insistence on referring to pens as frindles causes a major commotion when Mrs. Granger’s passion for vocabulary and strict emphasis on the correct use of language result in a battle of wills that threatens to disrupt the whole school. Their war of words spreads beyond the school resulting in after-school punishments, a home visit from the principal, national publicity, economic opportunities for local businessmen, and, eventually inclusion in the dictionary. All of our content is aligned to your State Standards and are written to Bloom's Taxonomy.

“Books are like puzzles,” write Lawrence and Nancy Goldstone. “The author’s ideas are hidden, and it is up to all of us to figure them out.” In this indispensable reading companion, the Goldstones–noted parent-child book club experts–encourage grownups and young readers alike to adopt an approach that will unlock the magic and power of reading. With the Goldstones help, parents can inspire kids’ lifelong love of reading by teaching them how to unlock a book’s hidden meaning. Featuring fun and incisive discussions of numerous children’s classics, this dynamic guide highlights key elements–theme, setting, character, point of view, climax, and conflict–and paves the way for meaningful conversations between parents and children. “Best of all,” the Goldstones note, “you don’t need an advanced degree in English literature or forty hours a week of free time to effectively discuss a book with your child. This isn’t Crime and Punishment, it’s Charlotte’s Web.” From the Trade Paperback edition.

Kelsey Green is the best reader in the third grade--well, maybe tied for best with know-it-all Simon Ellis. When the principal Mr. Boone announces a school-wide reading contest, complete with a pizza party for the winning class and a special certificate for the top readers in each grade, she knows she's just the person to lead Mrs. Molina's third graders to victory. But how can they win when her classmate Cody Harmon doesn't want to read anything, and even Kelsey's best friends Annika and Izzy don't live up to her expectations? And could Simon possibly be reading all of those books that he claims he is, or is he lying to steal Kelsey's rightful spot at the top? Kelsey Green, Reading Queen is the first book in Claudia Mills's Franklin School Friends series.
