Or grammar or sentence conventions The Junie B Jones series has always been recommended to me to encourage my daughter to love reading independently I thought starting off the series in first grade with this book was perfect but I was very disappointed Not only did I not like the story of how Junie begins first grade with a new teacher Mr Scary but I was shocked at how disrespectful and bratty Junie B is throughout the book My daughter picked up on these selfish and ugly ualities as well We both agreed that this book didn t have the characteristics of a good story Junie not only is adjusting to a new classroom with a new teacher but she is having difficulty reading the chalkboard and struggles through the idea of needing glasses This is a theme I do think is relevant to many first graders This is a realistic fiction book as the story is not a true account of a real girl named Junie B Jones but her everyday experiences could be trueI have seen this book in many classroom libraries in 2nd through 5th grade for students to choose for independent reading time While I understand the book can be a funny account of a realistic fictional character I don t appreciate the way Junie feels she can behave among peers and adults I would not choose to have this series in my classroom library as I think there are many worthy realistic fiction stories that have a meaningful and relevant message for oung readers Reading this book reminds me that not all children s literature is great and that it is important to have read the books my students are reading My reading conferences will be much effective if I too have read most of my students independent reading booksWhile my opinion about this book is strong I can only assume that some of my students would be entertained by this book as I know so many of my daughter s friends have read every book in the extended ser. Ake brand new friends And as if that weren't hard enough her brand new teacher Mr Scary He made that name up I believe Junie writes in a journal assi.

Ies I wouldn t allow my opinion to prevent my students from reading the book and I would still use the book to encourage independent reading for my early elementary readers 1st 3rd grade students I would use literature circles with students and design discussion uestions about the book for my students I would even include uestions about Junie s behavior to gauge what my students think about her in comparison to my strong opinion The Junie B Series has been a really good series to get my kids enjoying chapter books I appreciate that about this series Also I ve heard the magic tree house series is good Anyone else know of any good ones for 6ish Crochet year olds First book for the Biannual Bibliothon doneI loved these books as a kid For the challenge to read the book that gotou into reading I was originally going to reread Harry Potter but the I though about it I realized that it was this series that got me into reading I started reading around age four and I read books like Junie B Magic Tree House A Z Mysteries Those are the series that really got me into reading avidly because I didn t read HP until I was 7 So I decided to reread Junie B because its one of my favorities and its very short making it perfect for a readathon that so happens to be during my exam week So I m glad I reread this and honestly I want to reread the whole series now Book 19 of 30 for my 30 day reading challenge Fantastic This book is filled with laugh out loud moments My daughter could not have been amused by the antics and attitude of Junie B Jones and adults reading aloud will smile throughout as well We will be plowing through the series with hope that all of them are as entertaining as this one Read with C So perfect since she is in grade 1 and has purple glasses too These books are written so funny and as if a first grader is talking Super fun read My students loved Gnment figures out that she needs eyeglasses Will all the other kids laugh at her Will that obnoxious Excellent plus getting May become even obnoxiou.

This was one of my all time favorite books growing up as a oung kid This book did indeed have a lot of drama in it For example one of her best friends Lucille has replaced her with two twins Camille and Chenille Lucille does not want to be bothered with Junie B any because they were once best friends in kindergarden Grace and Junie B use to be bus buddies in kindergarden and now Grace has replaced her with a girl named Bobbi Jean Piper Junie B Jones is now all alone and feels worthless until she meets this little boy Herbert on the bus which happens to be a classmates of hers The other problem she s facing is eye sight problems She does not notice it but she is not happy when she finds out she has to wear glasses She thinks everyone will make fun of her This was a very delightful book to re read I loved it and I think child beginners will enjoy themselves too Read this with the three kids laughing uproariously in a couple evenings them asking me not to stop Okay I did not think it was all THAT funny but I am like a Dad and not a 1st 2nd and 3rd grader score one for Barbara Park who knows how to be hilarious for kids Summary Junie B is starting first grade with a new teacher some of the same friends and a new look She is struggling with friendships because of new twins in the room taking her place She calls her teacher Mr Scary and discovers her eye sight is failing her Will she be made fun of with her new lookEvaluation I liked this book because she is a funny character with a perspective of school that kids can relate to and find comedic as well It is an easy read and engaging for studentsTeaching Points I would use Junie B as a way to write journals on the struggles and good things about being in first grade or any grade It gives examples of Junie B s writing and students can see how she writes and correct her mistakes as a learning point The 18th installment in Barbara Park's popular beginning chapter book series puts our temperamental heroine into a brand new class where she has to
