    I am looking for some suggestions on a reading lesson for the story Lemonade for Sale. I will have to teach the skill compare and contrast. I've been looking all over and want to keep the kids as involved and engaged as I can. Any suggestions.... these kiddos are very low readers so first grade activities would be best.

    I'm not familiar with that story, can you give us something to go on? Compare and contrast what?

    You HAVE to use that book? If I remember right, wouldn't that book fit in better for a math lesson?

    If the skill is compare/contrast, I do this with 'The Cat in the Hat' and 'The Cat in the Hat Comes Back'. We read both books (1 per day) and then do a venn diagram comparing the 2. You could also compare 'The Cat in the Hat' book to the (original) movie.

    I always like to have the kids compare and contrast ME with another student. It keeps them all engaged.
