My students read the story "Because of Winn-Dixie" and then we hosted a Because of Winn-Dixie Night. The students were able to bring their families to have a 'Dump Party'. We had snacks and artwork based on the story. We also presented the movie. I provided each student and family member with an exit ticket. The student exit ticket held the student accountable to compare and contrast the story and the movie, while the parent exit ticket gave feedback.
