We are all absolutely loving our latest read-aloud book Matilda, especially because it has so many wonderful and crazy characters! This week, we've done a lot of comparing of characters during Reader's Workshop by looking at what is the same and what is different about them as well as how they affect one another.
Because we are all reading the story Matilda together, we worked with our reading partners to create Venn Diagrams comparing two characters from the book. For some characters it was VERY easy to think about how they were different, but we had to dig deeply to find ways in which they were similar.
We can't wait to see what happens to to Matilda next!
