    Is the book Because of Winn-Dixie okay to teach for the upper elementary grades --5th and 6th?

    I wouldn't see why not. How are you planning on using it?

    I was going to use it for 4th this year, but I was told it was on the SACRED 5th grade list, so I can't. I think it would be great to teach for 5th/6th.

    I think it is great through 6th grade. It is one of my all-time favorite books.

    It is really great for 5th grade! I am using it right now and my students LOVE it! The discussions are great and so are the themes. Great to use at the beginning of the year!

    That is so dumb to have a list of books that noone can use because another grade is using it. What ever happened to reading a book more than once?:confused: You can always learn something each time you read it.

    That's what I say. The teachers that are new to 5th grade this year agree with me, but I still have to persuade 2 others.

    I have also used it in 4th and the kids loved it. It was not a difficult book for them either.
