This is a unit I did while reading "Because of Winn-Dixie" by Kate DiCamillo with a small group but can easily be done with whole group as well.
Within the unit the following concepts are covered:
Describing Characters, Events, and Setting
Chapter Comprehension Questions
*My students struggle with written responses so all of the questions require students to write out their responses. There is no multiple choice in this unit. There is also many writing activities, something else my students struggle with. The writing activities have a planning form for the students as well as lined response page with the prompt to use.
There are also some fun activities where students get to use their creativity to create their own "mistake tree" and even research the meaning of their own name.
At the end of the unit my class and I had a party just like the characters in the book. The food labels I used for our party are included at the end of this unit for your enjoyment!
My kids loved this book! They were hoping there was a sequel to read! Enjoy!!!!!
