Short Easy Books to Compare/Contrast

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am being observed next week and I would like to do a compare/contrast of two books - no The Mitten and The Hat please - where I will read one book the day before and the second the next day - my students would complete 4-5 sentences about the stories with me and then the remaining 4-5 with a partner at their desks.

Help please - as I have googled this and have not found much - it also needs to be a book that they have not heard in kindergarten.

Thanks!

Which version did you use? I found The Three Snow Bears by Jan Brett .
Would you be able to share any questions or other information about how you planned and taught your lesson?

Thanks.

Cinderella

There are tons of Cinderella stories from around the world. I usually do a 2 week unit reading lots of different versions of Cinderella. The boys groan at first, but there are some versions that they like. Then we do the "funny" versions of Cinderella - like Dinorella and Dogerella. They really get into it!

I've used one of my favorite author's books - Keiko Kasza. Don't Laugh Joe, The Wolf's Chicken Stew, My Lucky Day,. The kids love the stories and they are great to use for comparing and contrasting the stories. It's easy for kids to talk about how the characters were alike and different. And the story structures, too. Love her books!

We make a big chart and compare and contrast many versions of runaway stories such as The Gingerbread man, The Gingerbread Girl, The Gingerbread Baby, The Runaway Tortilla, The Pancake, The Runaway Wok, etc. I was observed this year and the lesson went extremely well.
