We will read this book together each day to explore literary elements such as summarizing, making connections, character development, and illustrating important scenes. a Discussion Director will help guide our conversations. Each student will participate in these discussions and contribute in a different way each week. Reading and discussions will be completed together; however, students may need to finish their work on their own to be prepared for our book club discussions, which will be each Friday.

Because of Winn-Dixe is a sweet book about a girl who moves to a new town and desperately wants to make friends. Her first friend turns out to be a furry one. Kate DiCamillo does a great job telling stories and developing wonderful characters.
