Transcript Finding Similarities and Differences— Let's Practice!
Goopaw says get ready to practice "Finding Similarities and Differences". Remember, when we look for similarities, we are finding things that are alike. But, when we look for differences, we are finding things that are not alike. Let's see if we can find similarities and differences in the examples below. Here are two illustrations. What is similar, or alike, about the two characters? They are both wearing sneakers. What is different about them? One character is a tortoise and the other is a rabbit. Now let's listen to two sentences. The tortoise was so lazy and slow! The tortoise carefully took her time. What is similar about the tortoise in both sentences? The tortoise moves slowly in both sentences. What is different about them? In one sentence, the tortoise's speed was described as slow, but in the other it's called careful. Did you also say the same things? Let's compare two lists. List one says, put on your socks, put on your right sneaker and then your left sneaker. List two says, put on your socks, put on your left sneaker and then your right sneaker. What is similar about the lists? They both tell you how to put on sneakers. What is different about them? The order is different. One list says to put on your left shoe first, but the other says to start with your right! Did you also think of those similarities and differences? Goopaw had so much fun practicing with you today! See you next time!
