More than ever before, our students are visual learners. Pictures and images help students connect ideas, make inferences, and create deeper levels of understanding. It is no wonder that so many big movie blockbusters have ties to children’s books. Use these resources to help students improve writing skills and learn to view movies with a more critical eye.
This download includes a Venn diagram and a compare/contrast chart to help students notice similarities and differences between the movie version and the written version of the story.
Also, templates for information writing with a focus on comparing and contrasting is included. A persuasive template is provided to help students encourage friends to read the given book.
A list of 95 children's literature books and their matching movies is included. This list provides the children's book title, author, movie title, release date, and movie rating. This list may also help teachers create summer reading lists.
A parental permission slip to watch a video is also included.
