This starts week one of Unit Two in our Reading Street basal. Our skill is comparing and contrasting. Monday is supposed to be the day we do our leveled readers, but they are just entirely too hard for my little readers. So we decided to do mini lessons into go along with our skills instead. For today’s mini-lesson I read Stellaluna and the kids used a bat graphic organizer to compare and contrast bats and birds.
