All About Me - BOY version of Compare and Contrast
NOTE: See the exact same product, but GIRL version here:
“All About Me” introduces the concept of comparing and contrasting to the K-1-2 emergent reader: To better understand how they are the same and different, students compare and contrast descriptions of themselves of how they were back then - as a baby - to now, now that they are older.
Kindergartners – who are advanced level or “ready”
Second Graders - who need review or additional practice comparing and contrasting
Others - who need remediation
