Really need to find new read alouds (picture books or chapter books). I saw a good link here for chapter books not too long ago. Changing back to second grade again, but I have already taught this class once and it will include my own daughter. Feeling a deep need to try new things so that we have the experience. Any suggestions? Thanks

Recently I've been looking at the Virginia Reader's Choice awards---they have a list of picture books that they are particularly good. Many of them I hadn't read before and have enjoyed.
Another good list is Reading is Fundamental---several have activities to go with them for what it's worth.

I like all the books that have been mentioned - except maybe Sideways stories which is a funny book, just not a read-aloud IMO.

I ordered Catwings after seeing great reviews here. Was a bit skeptical at first - not my style - but my students have been having such great discussions I'm going to read it again next year

Funny to hear you say that...I didn't care for the Sideways stories, but the kids seem to like it. Thank you Cruxian for the book lists they have been awesome. I am still reading from the lists

Lulu series ..they love these books. I was going to read just the first to get them interested but they begged for more

Some years my children loved the Sideways stories. I have to read it at the end of the year if I decide the class will "get it". the humor is too advanced for the beginning of the year, and sometimes you just know that it isn't righfor a particular class. Some years we even take it into writing. Their chapter number is their class number.

Love some of the new suggestions!

I teach 5th and have never taught 2nd grade. But I just love this thread because I remember the books my second grade teacher read to us: Charlotte's Web, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and The Boxcar Children.
I absolutely love that these books are still being read to second graders. I remember being the in car with my dad and he asked me about what I was doing in school. I was telling him about the book, The Boxcar Children. He laughed and said his teacher read that to him too when he was attending the one room school house.
I'm 50, and my dad would have been 82. Nice to know good things don't change.

My kids love:

~School Mouse (especially if you have mice in your building like we do when the weather turns cold)
~Mrs. Piggle Wiggle by Betty McDonald
~Gooseberry Park (great one to start the year)
~A Lion to Guard Us (historical fiction)
~Addie's Dakota Winter by Laurie Lawlor (realistic fiction)
~Bunnicula
~Charlotte's Web (for the past 4 years, I have been unable to read the part where Charlotte dies........the tears start welling up in my eyes and I have to have a student finish reading that part of the story to the class).
~Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
