Winner Wednesday: Compare and Contrast

June 3, 2015 14 Comments
Happy Wednesday everyone!  I’m so excited to be able to link up with the fabulous Jennifer over at A Dab of Glue Will Do for her monthly linky party!  I love the idea of showcasing a favorite product and talking about how it can be used in the classroom.  There are so many phenomenal sellers and products out there, it’s great to be able to showcase them and get a chance to win them!  Thanks Jennifer for the awesome idea!  Make sure to link back to her site for a chance to win and check out other fabulous products that are being highlighted.

Today I’m putting my most wish-listed item up for a chance to win.  This compare and contrast packet is full of activities, printables, and anchor charts to help introduce and practice this important reading strategy.  

In this packet you will find anchor charts to introduce the terms as well as keywords students will need to start recognizing while reading.  

An introductory activity where students compare and contrast dogs and cats by sorting cards under the correct heading.

Once your students are ready to practice this skill on their own my packet has three different activities for students to use!  There’s pair and share where students pair up and compare and contrast two similar things on a card, Alike or Different, and Friend Venn.



If you don’t want to wait for the giveaway to be over you can purchases this product in my TpT store {here}.  Don’t forget to follow along with me on Bloglovin’ for more summer fun coming this month! Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a great day!

    Thank you for the giveaway! The majority of my students also receive speech/language services & I know this activity will help support their growth in this area, too! Jen
