I have created a comprehension packet to use with the book Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo. I have the packet divided into five reading assignments. Each assignment contains comprehension questions and vocabulary found within the assigned reading. Some assignments contain writing portions, selecting a passage to share, predicting, and summarizing. The AR level for Because of Winn-Dixie is 3.9.
The packet can last two to five weeks depending on the amount of time you have for Reading.
I have used novels to teach skills for the past two years, and my students LOVE them! They are always asking when we will do another one!
Let me know if you have any questions or problems with the download.
