Because of Winn-Dixie: Vocabulary activity that is designed to help students learn the definitions of new words and apply these words to increase comprehension. This activity is a supplement to the story Because of Winn Dixie in the Harcourt Journeys 4th grade reading book. Students will write a simple definition for each new word and then follow directions to draw a picture, illustrate, list, or apply their understanding of the word in a creative way. The directions ask them apply these new words to real life situations. The activity pages can be used during initial vocabulary instruction, vocabulary practice, homework, or as a study guide.
