Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Where do you want to live? - Section 2: Reading the Story


Even though I went through the comparing and contrasting using the double bubble map I did not write a comparison paper.  I wanted my students to see the two places to live and decide where they would like to live.  We wrote a simple opinion paper.  In kindergarten, most of our writing is about ourselves and what we like.  We may be five, but we have opinions.
