Literature Group Reading “Because of WInn Dixie”

April 14, 2017


Reading “Because of Winn-Dixie” in our literature group was well received by my students. They thoroughly enjoyed reading it, discussing it then acting it.

Great Book for a Literature Group

My students have enjoyed reading the book and now it’s time to share it with the others in the class.

My reading group has just finished reading, “Because of Winn-Dixie” and I was wondering what to do to wrap it up and found these great sites.  I intend to let my students explore the activities on Scholastic.  I think they will enjoy the Swamp game, even though they have to answer some questions. Then I will suggest to perform the short play that is offered through the Pet Shop.  I think my students will thoroughly enjoy doing it.

Additional resources:

  • Vocabulary list – with the definition and how it relates to the story
  • Scholastic has some great activities (games, a play and book recommendations).
  • Author site with great discussion questions and other activities.

The reading level for this book is 4.1.
