Dear first-grade journal,
Hooray, hooray! TheatreworksUSA is making a musical (that is a play all jumbled together with singing and dancing, I believe). And what do you know! It’s all about me, Junie B. Jones! (The B stands for Beatrice, only I do not like Beatrice. I just like B and that’s all.)
This is the bestest musical ever, I tell you! It's got loads of funny songs, and it's based on a bunch of books by this lady, Barbara Park, wrote about me and the things I do in first grade. Whew! I'm glad I can write everything down in my Top-Secret Beeswax Journal! And you know what? I think I might like first grade after all.
Love, (but not the mushy kind)
Curriculum Connections: Communication and Language Arts, Literature-Based, Music, Relationships & Family.
