TPT Seller Challenge: Week 3 Make Your Masterpiece

Two posts in one morning!  Whew!
I'm back again this week for the 3rd week of the #TPT SellerChallenge hosted by some amazing teachers.  This week was all about finishing a product and making it a masterpiece.
Well, last night about 11PM, I wrapped up this little project that I had actually started last week, but I've been thinking about it for weeks.  Yesterday, I enjoyed our gorgeous summer weather with highs in the upper 80's (it's been 95 and above for almost 2 and a half weeks) and powered through to really get a lot of this done.
A little background...over the past couple years, my kiddos and I have done novel studies on the Doll People Series and with some requests to do other novel studies, I decided to take on a new favorite book character - Judy Moody!  I had a bunch of the books already, but over the last few weeks of school between Scholastic Reading Club and the Scholastic Warehouse Sale, I think I have most all of the Judy Moody as well as the Judy Moody and Friends books.
So, the first project I decided to tackle with Judy Moody was the Judy Moody and Friends set.  There are currently 5 books in this series and I'm hoping they will add more.  These books are early chapter books and each book has 3 short chapters and the pages are in full color - so your it captures the interest of your early chapter book readers.

So what's included in this set?
Well, for each book there is a novel study/book companion/book study that includes 6 multiple choice and 2 written comprehension questions per chapter (so 18 MC and 6 WC per book) as well as some type of craftivity.  Each craft has a writing activity or comprehension activity to go with the craft.

Check out my crafting from last night...

What's your next masterpiece?
