compare and contrast text structure

 Text structure is a difficult concept for children but it is one of our fifth grade standards.  Comparing and contrasting is one of the easier text structures to identify. My sister Caryn recommended the picture book The Yellow House to me and I have used it every year to teach (or review) compare/contrast text structure. It is easy to make an art connection with the book as well.I also use When Harriet Met Sojourner another great picture book by Catherine Clinton. Here are the posters for both lessons. Christine
