Teaching Third Grade: Comparing Texts

A few weeks ago, I received a special treat from Candlewick Press, Jon Klassen’s Hat Box.  At the time I was in the middle of planning lessons to teach the “comparison of settings and plots between texts by the same author” to teach in a third grade classroom.  The timing was perfect.

I set about planning lessons that included read alouds of each of the books, I Want My Hat Back, This is Not My Hat, and We Found a Hat.  After we read the three books, we compared the plots and settings.

After students captured the information on their graphic organizer, they chose two books in order to write a comparison of the settings and plots.

Even though I used the three books together to teach children how to compare plots and settings, each book is a perfect stand alone read aloud for children.  And so much fun!
