Bee Compare and Contrast

This week we worked on the story, "Honeybees" from Reading Street.  Our comprehension skill was compare and contrast and that can be tricky for first grade.  We did this venn diagram after our shared reading.  Before we began reading and discussing the story together I showed the students the Envision It video from the Pearson Interactive Digital Path to set the purpose for our reading.  The students knew we would be contrasting bees to people after we read the story.  They were very engaged during our reading/discussion and were ready to complete the venn diagram.  They had a great time comparing people to bees and of course they came up with things I would not have thought of.  After we completed our diagram the kiddos made this quick bee craftivity that can be found for free right {here}.  I had no idea I would enjoy working with this story so much.  My littles just loved all our activities for the week.
