During our CAFÉ mini-lessons this week, one of our main focuses was “Compare and Contrast”. This week we focused on comparing and contrasting things we know. For example, the first day we compared and contrasted dogs and cats. Another lesson, each student paired up with a partner and I passed out two picture cards. They worked together to describe the picture and compare and contrast the two things. After, they shared one thing that was similar (compare) and one that was different (contrast) between their pictures. Next week, we will be focusing on comparing and contrasting within and between texts.
