Description

Winn-Dixie is better at making friends than anyone Opal has ever known.

The summer Opal and her father, the preacher, move to Naomi, Florida, Opal goes into the Winn-Dixie supermarket – and comes out with a dog – a dog she dubs Winn-Dixie. Because of Winn-Dixie, Opal learns to let go, just a little, and that friendship–and forgiveness–can sneak up on you like a sudden summer storm.

Integrated Literature & Writing Discovery Guides

Level 2 Literature and Writing Discovery Guides are recommended for elementary (grades 3-5) students who are in the process of acquiring the proficiency necessary to confidently read and to respond to a complex piece of literature. Each guide is designed to be completed in five weeks, which allows students to comfortably work through six units in a typical school year.

Each week for four weeks, students will:

  • Learn to take notes on characters, settings, and plot
  • Study vocabulary
  • Answer comprehension questions
  • Write a short personal response
  • Have opportunity to discuss topics related to the story

On the fifth week students are given a selection of hands-on projects to complete.
