A good friend of mine teaches 2nd grade in North Carolina and asked me to make something for comparatives for her. I thought I would post it here too in case anyone else is able to use it. I have directions on the first page - please let me know if they are not clear enough!

Edit: Ok, so I just printed it and realized just how small the boxes are. I think I may do another version tomorrow and make the boxes a little larger.

Edit #2: I just talked to my friend and she said she likes them the size that they are, so for now I think I will leave them as is. If anyone would like them larger, let me know and I will fix them and repost.

Penguin Fact and Opinion

Welcome to all of my new followers!  I am so excited to have 21 people following my blog!  Thank you for all of your kind words - I really appreciate them.  
I don't know about all of you, but I usually have ideas for things I want to make when I am supposed to be doing something else - like cleaning the house!  I have a bunch of ideas jotted in a notebook, but when I thought about making these fact and opinion penguins tonight I wanted to do them right away!  Hope you can use them!

I am trying a new way of posting this one - thank you for all of your help Ladybug Teacher Files!
