Because of Winn-Dixie Words-within-Words puzzle and Cloze activity.
The first part of this product, a word puzzle, challenges students to find simple words within the phrase “Grocery Store Dog”
The second activity of the resource is based on the actual details of the novel. Students use words they found in the phrase "Grocery Store Dog" and fill in the blanks with the correct answers.
Students can work on the puzzle and Cloze exercise individually or in groups. Both or either of the activities can be done together as a class.
Great for early finishers and the fill-in-the-blank sentences help reinforce the novel’s details.
