3 Books and Lessons for Teaching Compare and Contrast

Hi There!


Looking for ideas on how to teach students how to compare and contrast as they read books?  Check out the three mini lesson statements and watch the video to get more ideas on how to teach comparing and contrasting with three specific books. 










Here is a chart with three mini lesson statements and examples of how to frame your whole class discussion.  Fill out your charts with these organizers as you discuss each book with the class!









Tight Times  is a great story about struggling financially and having to sacrifice.  The boy wants a dog but his family cannot afford it.  It's a great book to compare and contrast the beginning of the story to the end, as the boy comes up with an alternative to getting a pet dog.



Always In Trouble is a hilarious story about a dog who always seems to get in trouble.  Kids can totally relate, comparing their pets to this dog, or also comparing how the dog finally starts to behave!



Let Me Finish! is a fun story of a boy who tries to read a book but is constantly being told the ending by others.  It's a great story to help students compare and contrast their experiences with reading that of the boy in the story.

  1. Right now you’re probably reading this message because you’re desperate to finally learn how to not only train your dog quickly and effectively, but you also don’t want to have to spend a huge chunk of cash on professional dog trainers or read yet another dog training book that doesn’t get you results.

    Don’t worry, you’re NOT alone in your frustration!
