Comparison Notebooking Page

by Jimmie Lanley on May 7, 2012

A blog reader and online friend Amy Uptain sent me a request for a notebooking page by email. She said

I have a suggestion for a notebooking page.  My 2nd grader read Mary Poppins, and instead of having her do a more traditional book report, I had her contrast the book with the movie. I actually just had her list some things that occur only in the book and only in the movie.  I couldn’t find a specific page for her to use, so I just used a columned sheet from Donna Young.  You can read about it on my blog Hope is the Word.

What do you think?  Do you think a book vs. movie page might be useful?

I love this idea, Amy. And your daughter’s notebooking page turned out great! But instead of limiting my printable to book versus movie, I made a more general page that can be used for comparing and contrasting any two things.

These pages could be used as graphic organizers for prewriting a comparison/contrast paragarph or essay. Or they can stand alone as a daily narration page. The pages have both college ruled and manuscript lines.

I love it when my readers make suggestions of printable notebooking pages because first of all I sometimes run out of ideas. Secondly I like creating pages that I know you will use. So feel free to make suggestions. I can’t promise to make them all, but I really do take them into consideration.
