Our new read aloud will be "Because of Winn Dixie." Does anyone know of a graphic organizer or activities to go with the book ?
Thanks !

When I read it with my lower 5th grade readers, we kept a running list of things that started with the phrase "Because of Winn-Dixie..." Believe it or not, something that simple brought out a TON of really thoughtful observations! Some examples they came up with were:

Because of Winn-Dixie, Opal isn't lonely anymore.
...Opal met (whoever--can't remember character names anymore!)
...Opal learned how to communicate with her dad


There's also a lot you can do with figurative language: the imagery of the father as a turtle with his head pulled in is repeated several times, and the book is full of similes, metaphors, and personification.

Hope that helps!

I read this the last 2 years with my 4th graders and they loved it. If you google Because of Winn Dixie lesson plans you will come up with activities.. if you can't find it let me know I am sure I have them on my computer and can send them to you.

We did this book last year with our 3rd graders and they loved it. Here is one of the links I used last year. I am at a different school this year and this is the only one I could remember. But just like the poster above said if you Google it, you will find activities. Good luck!!
