Moving to a new town can be hard, and making new friends can be even harder. With the help of her dog, Winn Dixie, Opal is able to get to know Miss Franny Block, the local librarian. Miss Block tells Opal an exciting tale about a bear that once wandered into the library.


Comprehension Skill –Sequence

  • Sequence is the order of the events that occur in a story.

  • You can determine the order of events by clue words such as first and next, in the beginning, then, following, after, and finally.

  • Some story events may occur at the same time.

  • Other clue words to indicate sequence might be in the beginning, then, following, after, and finally.

  • Other story events, such as flashbacks, are told out of order.


Comprehension Skill - Summarizing

  • A summary is a short statement that tells the main ideas of a selection.

  • A story summary should tell the goals of the characters, how they try to reach them, and whether they reach them.

  • A summary of an article should tell the main idea, leaving out unnecessary details.

Tips on Summarizing


Question of the WeekPg. 18-19

  • What experiences bring diverse people together?


Vocabulary Skill –Word Structure : Suffixes

  • The suffix –fulmeans “full of.” For example, prideful means “full of pride.”

  • The suffix –ly means “in a way that is.”

  • Sometimes –ful and –ly are added to a base word together as in pridefully, which means “acting in a way that is full of pride.”


Let’s Practice Suffixes


Comprehension Review Skill

  • Author’s Purposeis the author’s reason or reasons for writing this story.

  • Authors don’t usually tell you this. You have to figure the reasons out.

Research/Study Skill –Map/Globe/Atlas TE 39L

Literary Device – Idioms TE Pg. 39b

  • An idiom is a type of figurative language that cannot be understood by the ordinary meanings of words.

  • When Lou said, “I don’t have long to go,” he meant he didn’t have much time to live, not that he had a distance to travel.

  • Often an idiom can be understood by figuring out what makes sense in context

  • Find the idiom on page 29.
