We Know About Characters...Because of Winn Dixie!


This is definitely one of my favorite books. Each year as I read it to my students, it quickly becomes one of their favorites as well! During Reader's Workshop over the last few months we have focused on following and observing characters closely to bring meaning to our reading. The characters in Because of Winn Dixie helped us with this task. After completing the book, we
celebrated by watching the movie and we even had our own little party complete with dump punch, egg salad sandwiches, Litmus Lozenges (aka Jolly Ranchers) and of course we had to have pickles!
My students used some of the apps that have been introduced this year to create their own iMovie about the book. We hope you enjoy their awesome work!
