We have started our next chapter book with another author study, Kate DiCamillo and the story, Because of Winn Dixie. We are beginning to work in our Reader's Notebooks and learn to use Literacy Strategies. Our first strategy was MAKING CONNECTIONS. We are also learning to identify literary elements (such as character, setting, plot, and theme) and sequencing. The students are writing 2.6 paragraph summaries for each chapter of the book. We are enjoying this heart warming story!
