Each week, you will complete a reading reflection journal. To complete this journal, you will need to review ALL of the daily jots you have collected through the week. Read your jots and think about how your thinking about your book has changed since you wrote them.

What did you used to think?

What has changed about your thinking?

What new information have you learned?

How did that new information influence or alter your thinking?


Use this idea to guide your reflection writing:

I used to think blah blah blah because blah blah blah,

but now I think yada yada yada because yada yada yada.


Be sure you include SPECIFIC DETAILS from the text and from your schema to support your new ideas. Include PAGE NUMBERS and be VERY DESCRIPTIVE when explaining the text information that supports your thoughts.

Last pages read 169-182.I used think Opal was lonley in
the beginning, but now I think that she has so many friends that she is really happy.I know Opal was lonely
because 1) she justed moved to a different town, 2) her mom left her and her dad and last 3) two boys made fun of her. Now, she is happy and has friends because of Winn~Dixie. What I learned is that Winn~Dixie is important to Opal because he help her make a lot of new friends so he could be happy and so Opal could be happy. I feel like Winn~Dixie tried to help Opal the whole time.

Last pages read 42-69. I used think that Hank was going to get away with not going to parent teacher conferences in the beginning, but, know I think he's not because, everyday in school Mrs.Aldof is saying don't forget the confenece. So, if they go to a concert Mrs. Aldof will call and say," Your late for our parent teacher confrece about Hank, so that is when Hank gets in alot of trouble for 1) not reasponsable, 2) not caring about his learning and 3) LYING. learned that Hank is not an honest person to his family or friends but he is honest to some like his best friend. That was my theory about Hank and the secret confence.
