Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus
Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus - Barbara Park,Denise Brunkus

Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus by Barbara Park is a very engaging book for young readers where students can relate to the main character Junie B. Jones. Junie B. has her first day of Kindergarten and has to ride the school bus to school, which Junie B. does not enjoy.  At the end of the day, instead of going home on the bus, Junie B. hides in the school causing lots of chaos.  Junie B. eventually agrees to ride the school bus if she gets to be with a friend.  Julie B. Jones is very clever, but still has many lessons to learn.  This book would go well with teaching the importance of rules, especially those enforced at school.  Using Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, teachers could have students help make classroom rules and specifically point out dismissal rules at the end of the day.  The Fountas and Pinnell text level for Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus is Level M (Grades 3 and 4).

First Day Jitters
First Day Jitters - Julie Danneberg,Judy Love

This is the heartwarming story of a girl who is scared to go to school on her first day. She hides in her bed, and shows in other ways that she is nervous about what's to come. At the end of the book, the reader realizes that girl is not a student, but is actually the teacher.

 

This book could help create classroom community on the first day of school. Students would either write or share their own feelings about the first day of school, after they have been shown that it's ok to be nervous about something new.

 

AR Level 2.4

Corduroy - Don Freeman

Corduroy is a curious bear seeking his missing button. He goes through the mall trying to find one. He causes a ruckus and is taking back to where he belongs. Only, he belongs to the little girl who has a home and friendship waiting for him. I would use this book possibly as a counting activity with buttons or maybe create adventures for Corduroy and see if the author came up with any of the same stories.

Bud, Not Buddy - Christopher Paul Curtis

This book is for older grades. It is a roller-coaster of emotions as we go through Bud's journey with him. We find how hard Bud's life is and how he overcomes it. Character analysis and context clues would be great to express and teach with this book. Vocabulary is also very rich.

 

level: U
