Do you read Because of Winn-Dixie with your students? Or do they read it by themselves during a book club or other independent activity?
We use this book during our WIN time (What I Need), which is our reading and math intervention time. I love having at grade-level and above grade level students working on book clubs or independent reading projects while I work with below grade level students on an extra dose of reading.
I would assign chapters with questions to go along with them, or we would do book club pages for comprehension help. But, I felt like they could use a bit more guidance and I really wanted them to work on reading comprehension and reading skills (I know the comprehension is real reading, but those skills show up on all the tests!!).
Interested in a novel study for students? Check them out on in my Teachers Pay Teachers store!
I created these novel study packets to solve that problem! Each novel student packet has students working on vocabulary, main details in the chapter, a comprehension skill, a phrase or saying from the chapter, a reading skill and comprehension questions!
I'm a mom, wife, and teacher that loves to read, hang out with my family, and learn. I love to use our blog to share ideas with others and to help keep me learning!
