PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Identifying similarities and differences is an important foundational skill which many later developing literacy skills build upon. Students must have an underlying knowledge of how items / concepts / words are alike and how they are different in order to complete higher level comparing and contrasting tasks.

Comparing and contrasting skills are embedded in language arts strands across grade levels in the Common Core State Standards. They are emphasized beginning in Kindergarten, and continue throughout elementary school. Students are expected to compare characters, key details, main idea, setting, story structure, themes, topics, events, and genres.

Some students require additional support in acquiring comparison skills at a more basic, concrete level, before they can be expected to apply comparison skills to abstract concepts in literature and informational text. Working on similarities and differences using everyday items/concepts that incorporate a visual component will help to reinforce underlying skills for these students.

This product was designed with these specific students in mind. It is intended for use in Speech Therapy, Resource Rooms, or in classrooms for differentiated instruction (remediation / Tier II- Tier III).

-14 full-page color pizzas, with different topping combinations
