Title: Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus. Descriptive Annotation: In this story a six-year-old Junie B. Jones is starting kindergarten for the first time. To get to her school she must take the bus although she is very hesitant. The morning of her first day of school her mother walks her to the bus stop and the very nervous Junie B gets on Mr. Once on the bus, Junie B.
After failed attempts at making friends, Junie declares they are all meanies. When the bus arrives at school Junie B. When she gets off the bus she is in a terrible mood. Junie B. At the end of the day, all the students line up for the bus and leave the room following behind the teacher, except Junie.
She instead hides in the classroom because she does not want to take the bus home. Junie falls asleep while hiding and wakes up once everyone from the school has gone home. She then goes throughout the building having fun in many different rooms. Until finally she has to go to the bathroom except she finds that all of the bathrooms in the building are locked.
A janitor runs after Junie and unlocks a bathroom for her. When Junie leaves the bathroom her mom, the principal, and her teacher are waiting for her. The text in this story is written in large font on each page making it easy for students to read. Linguistic and Cultural Diversity: In this story there is little to no cultural diversity.
Junie is depicted as a white female American student as are the other students in the few illustrations in the cook. Woo, who appears to be Asian in the illustration. In addition to this lack of cultural diversity, there is also a lack of linguistic diversity. This chapter book is written in all English. However, the text in the story is very interesting because it is written in the way a kindergartener like Junie actually talks. Interdisciplinary Connections: The story is very entertaining and funny however I do not believe it can be integrated into that many elementary subjects.
However, this text can easily be integrated into a Language Arts class in the middle elementary grades of 2 and 3. Students may read this story and then write a narrative of their own explaining all that happened during their very first day of school or their opinion of riding the bus to school. I can also seeing this book aid in students identifying charcter traits. Students would look at Junie and determine all the traits she demonstrates throughout the text.
Other Information: I believe students in grades 2, 3, and 4 will really enjoy this book because of the humor and silliness of Junie B.
In addition, by this age students will know how school works and what is expected of them as students. After reading this story I would ask students to complete a Venn diagram comparing their first day of school to that of Junie B. Overall, I really enjoyed the humor and light heartedness of this book. This would be a great book for students to read for enjoyment however I do not believe this is the best text to integrate into curriculum. You must be logged in to post a comment. Skip to content.
