Are you looking for a fun way for your students to share what they are learning as they read "Because of Winn Dixie?" Here's my readers' theater script that they will love!
Script focuses on main characters of the book "reflecting" on how Winn Dixie has influenced them and their little town of Naomi, FL. This would be a great addition to your study of changes in character actions and motives or a study of theme. Of course, readers' theater is always great to use for fluency practice, too!
Script is 5 pages long and is written with 10 parts. You could easily split up the 2 Narrator parts to include a few more students.
This is also great to have handy when you need a sub!
This readers' theater is a part of my "Because of Winn Dixie Novel Unit Bundle." The Bundle has very detailed lesson plans, a student journal (full of graphic organizers, writing activities and thought provoking reading strategy lesson guides), vocabulary graphic organizers and puzzles, writing extension and craftivities, bulletin board/wall displays, tests with answer keys, rubrics to projects, and of course, this great readers' theater. You don't have to do any of the planning with this bundle, and grading is made easy with the answer keys and rubrics. Check it out today!
