This book is a great read for upper elementary grades. A lot of students today can relate to the main character and her family situation. Because of Winn Dixie is also a great way to introduce themes because of the many struggles in the story. Also, it is a great way to introduce a new writing topic. The student could write on a bottle shaped paper about a mistake they have made. The bottles could be hung on a paper cut out of a tree like the ghost tree in the book.

 

Lexile Level: 610L

"Because of Winn-Dixie" by Kate DiCamillo is my hands down favorite children's chapter book. I remember reading this book in third grade and it increased my love for chapter books tremendously. The story is about a little girl named Opal who moves to a new town and has to meet new friends and adjust to a new environment. Fortunately she meets a dog who changes her world and helps her get through many trials such as asking difficult questions to her father. This book is a great text to use for setting, main events, and all the elements a story has to offer. Along with these, it has great vocabulary for a beginning lover of chapter books and will draw a reader in quickly. When discussing theme, this text has several different realistic themes and each student could easily write about one. The accelerated reader level of this text is 3.9.

I love this book. This was one of my favorites in elementary school. This would be a good whole class book in order to make sure everyone understands the story. It would be a great way to incorporate characters, setting, and the writting process in the classroom. It is on a 610L reading level in the Lexile system.
