Junie B., First Grader: Boo...and I Mean It! - Barbara Park, Denise Brunkus

This book is a great book to read to your students and for the Fall term! I believe that this book is great for grades kindergarten through fifth. The teacher would have to read it to them in the lower grades, but once you reached third grade a class set would be ideal! A teacher could come up with some many lessons with this book including: cause and effect, main idea, characters, and the five W's. With the lower grades of course it would have to be group work or the whole class could work on it together. These topics are covered in all Language Arts classes. The teacher would just have to change the hardness of the assignment or make it group work depending on where the students are in their studies.     Also if your students like Junie B. then you can create a passion for reading in them and they would want to read all her books.
