  • 1. Compare and Contrast The True Story of The Three Little Pigs By. Jon Scieszka
  • 2. Summary
    • According to A. Wolf, we simply have not heard his side of the story — until now. While we may believe that the wolf who visited the three little pigs huffed and puffed to blow the pigs' houses down, it turns out that he simply had a bad cold and had a powerful sneeze. Who could blame him for eating the pigs that died when their houses fell as a result of his sneezing? Furthermore, the wolf was only visiting the pigs in the first place to borrow a cup of sugar to make a cake for his grandmother's birthday. The pigs wouldn't even give him any sugar! When the third pig insulted his grandmother, A. Wolf "got a little crazy." The police found him trying to break down the pig's door, and news reporters wrote the story that we have come to know.

  • 12. What we have Learned
    • The Skill lesson I worked on today was Compare and Contrast. One thing I understand better is that its used to show how a person or thing is alike & different. This skill will help me be a better reader because it will help me organize on how things in a story relate or not. I am going to remember how to use this skill by remembering that words like, also, and similar to compare & unlike, however, and different to contrast.
    • One piece of advise I would give to someone working with this skill is to see if there is “like” or “however” in the story to indicate Compare & Contrast. In order to improve I will need to make a Venn diagram to organize the data I collected from the story with similar & different significance. One more thing I want you to know is that you can practice Compare & Contrast anywhere. Foe example, in class there are diverse ethnic groups. You can Compare & Contrast their Physical Characteristics as well as Pronunciation of words.
