Because of Winn-Dixie


We have been reading aloud from Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate di Camilla.
It is the story of Opal, a young girl in Florida, and her dog, Winn-Dixie.

How do you think Opal has grown and changed so far in this story?

How do you think Winn-Dixie has grown and changed by this point in the story?

What about the preacher? How do you think he has grown and changed since the story began?

What do you think about the other characters like Gloria Dump and Sweetie Pie Thomas?

Would you like to meet Opal and Winn-Dixie?

Do you think it would be hard to move to a new town where you didn't know anyone?
Have you ever moved to a new town?

I think Opal has grown because she has learned new things from people she knows.The preacher has grown because he used to not like Winn Dixie and now he does.I would like to meet them because they seem fun a little bit to me.

Opal has changed a lot in this story. One reason is she changed is she gets lots of new friends.

Opal has changed because she has met new friends.

Winn-Dixie has grown because his fur has grown in. He has changed because he has an owner, Opal.

He's getting to like Winn-Dixie more and more.

Ms. Franny Block has a new friend, Opal. That's all I can think of.

I would because they are nice.

It would be hard because you wouldn't know anyone. No.

Opal has changed alot in the story because the difference is in the beginning of the story she didn't have as much friends and at the end of the story she had more.
