I absolutely love the Junie B. Jones series by Barbara Park. They are wonderfully hilarious stories about a little Kindergarten/1st grade girl who is always up to something. They are packed full of great vocabulary, conflict and resolution, and much more that makes teaching them fun and enchanting. I usually start the school year off by reading Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus to my older kiddos. I just discovered today that June is Junie B. Jones month! Right now at Barnes and Noble, if you buy two Junie B. Jones books, you get one FREE! This is a great deal, especially paired with your educator discount card. In addition to the books, there is also a great website for Junie B. with activities, games, and much more to go along with the lesson. You can save these activities or print them from the website. Check it out below!
