Summary

Hurray, hurray for a brand-new school year! Only, for Junie B. Jones, things are not actually that pleasant. 'Cause first grade means having to get used to a whole new classroom. And a whole new teacher. And a whole new bunch of strange children. But here's the worst thing of all: when Junie B. tries to read words on the chalkboard, she can't seem to see what everyone else is seeing! Is it possible she might end up wearing glasses?

 

Home- To- School Connection

Junie B. has made it to first grade (at last!). Ask your child to remember his feelings on his first day of school. What was he nervous or anxious about? Can he imagine what Junie B. Jones might be feeling as she begins first grade? Have the child discuss with a family member what might be different for Junie as she embarks on her first-grade adventures.
