Comparative Writing

Our focus this week is on how to do comparative writing. 

I've created a seven-step formula to help kids to be successful with this important form of non-fiction writing. 

I've taken my Powerpoint and made a video out of it. No doubt, when reviewing it with your child, you'll need to pause it and read each step, otherwise, it goes too fast.  

Here is a link to the Bert and Ernie video referenced in the powerpoint.  After watching it, children made a Venn diagram and worked with their elbow partners comparing Bert and Ernie and it was loads of fun! 

Here we are working away!
