So, we are bumping it up this week and I am loving it! (I still have to fit in a couple boring phonics lessons) but I am making up for it with a novel study on none other than... Junie B. Jones! First graders love reading her books and we have multiple class sets at my school so, on a whim, I picked one out and decided we would do a 2-week study! We are halfway through the book and it is amazing to see how some of them are so ready for 2nd grade [tear]
Anyhoo, I haven't been able to find exactly what I want in the way of resources for the book we reading: Junie B. Jones has a Peep in her Pocket. Maybe I didn't look too hard but what I have found hasn't been so great. So... I am making a novel study packet for this story. I have been working so hard trying to make it math and literacy (it's not ready yet...) but it will be soon! I am kind of using things as I make them! I will have it ready by this weekend, so if you have this book at your school your planning will be done with this packet! Keep an eye out...for a freebie RIGHT NOW!
Here, is part of the math part of the packet that will be a fun center.
