  13. I was first introduced to Junie B. 2 years ago when my helper picked one out for me to read after lunch. I was laughing so hard the kids could barely understand me which in turn got them cracking up, too. After gaining my composure we continued. Several of them thought it was hilarious to call me Mrs. We loved the book so much I bought the whole set!

I remind the students that silly Junie B. ends up in the Principals office when she makes bad choices and we certainly don’t won’t that to happen to anyone in our class. When my students are ready to begin reading chapter books themselves, their first choice is, of course, Junie B. Jones.
