Comparing Books using Pete the Cat

Today we enjoyed Pete the Cat- Play Ball and Pete the Cat-Pete's Big Lunch  to work on our comparing two texts strategy.  We talked about what happened in each by using our strategy of Check for Understanding (being able to tell the who and what) after hearing the stories.  Then we got into pairs and filled in the cute Venn Diagram given to us by the sweet Jennifer White at First Grade Blue Skies.  Thanks again Jennifer for putting this together for us. After creating our Venn Diagrams in pairs we shared them on the Apple TV and explained our comparisons to the class. I put under each picture what was shared during that time.
 Take a peek below...
