Book # 17 Junie B. Jones is a Graduation Girl








All the children in Room Nine are excited when they get their bright white graduation gowns. Mrs. says to keep them in their boxes until the big day. But Junie B. Jones just can't help herself. Then-uh-oh!-an accident happens! Can Junie B. find a way to fix things? Or will graduation be a spotty dotty disaster?


Home- To- School Connection

In Junie B. Jones Is a Graduation Girl, Mrs. asks the children to work together to compose a classroom poem, but Junie B.'s class gets off track when silliness takes over. Start by writing the poem that Room Nine began on the chalkboard (p.12), "Roses are red, Violets are blue. Graduation is here . . ." Ask your child to think of a meaningful way to end this poem with a rhyme (more seriously than Junie B. did!). Write several ideas on the board. Discuss the use of rhyming in this poem. Now have your child compose his own poems, either about graduation, like Junie's, or about another accomplishment they are proud of. You can write it in your Junie B. Jones notebook.
