Mentor Texts for Compare & Contrast

As students mature, learning to compare and contrast different stories is an amazing way to demonstrate deep understanding of a story.  With second grade CCSS, students compared similar stories--like fractured fairy tales.  Third graders are expected to apply this skill with two different stories altogether!  Head over to I Teach Third to see how I used biographies by David Adler to teach compare & contrast!  I've also give a few other suggested books to make your planning super easy!
Read-aloud Mentor Texts are a great way to teach Compare & Contrast.  I love this selection of books found in any school library!
Hope you love these amazing stories!  I know you will love the rich vocabulary, and your kids will love learning about these amazing people!
