Junie B. Jones :)

Our book studies have featured books of a different genre every month. In December my class enjoyed the realistic fiction found in Junie B. Jones is Captain Field Day.

As always, before we begin a book study we do some Table Twitter. Groups discuss what the book might be about, what genre it could be, and who may be some characters in the story.

I know that sometimes Junie B. gets a bad rap because she does not always speak perfectly {grammatically}. I chose to do this book with my class because it provides a great example of character

It made for a great lesson on how the character changes in the story. It also showed how you can tell a lot about the characters by their actions. Junie thought that as Captain Field Day she got to be the boss of everyone. She even wanted to dress like a super hero!

Throughout the day, however, Junie changed from a bossy leader to what a captain should be, a team supporter.

Students learned how to do a close read, as they dug into the text for evidence.

What I LOVE about doing novel studies is that I always choose books that are part of a series. That way, when they see how much they LOVE the story we're doing as a class, they seek out more during read to self time. 
And isn't getting them to LOVE reading the whole point? :)
