Read aloud chapter book

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I just finished reading a chapter book to my students, and want to fit in another one before break. Does anyone have a suggestion-I don't really want to do Junie B or magic Treehouse and I have done Charlotte's Web, My Father's Dragon, and James and the Giant Peach already. I have read the Worst Christmas Pageant ever before, and that one is OK, but it's not my favorite.

Because of Winn Dixie
Ramona books
Socks, by Beverly Cleary
The Chocolate Touch
The Boxcar Children series

I just started reading "On Christmas Eve" to my kids. It is about a girl who wants to meet the REAL Santa Claus on Christmas Eve. (Her older sister doesn't believe in Santa, and neither does her best friend. This is a little sticky at first, but as you read, it really makes the kids think about how Santa is real.) BTW, I cry every time I read this, as the girl's best friend's dad has cancer and stays with them a lot.

Who is the author of "On Christmas Eve"? It sounds like one that would be good for my class.

There are imaginative books written by Enid Blyton (a British author) called The Magic Faraway Tree. Check those out!

What about A Christmas Carol, but a kids version? It should be long enough to get you to break. Plus it has a lot of good principles and virtues to talk about.

My kids really liked Flat Stanley. The book is super short and took me about a week to read. We just started reading Stuart Little this week. The chapters are short and I should have it finished by the time we go on break.

Chalk Box Kid

Short, great message and my kids LOVE to draw a chalk garden on black construction paper when we finish the book....choose small or large paper based on time available.

I also have limited the kids to WHITE chalk so detail is more important....FUN!

My kids love the book Snot Stew by Bill Wallace. (Yes, you can imagine their reaction to the title!) It a great book for visualizing. The story is about 2 cats, a dog and the family they live with. The title comes from the children saying something is theirs...but turns into a battle of "is not", "is too". As they say it faster and faster the cats believe the children are saying...snot stew.

My students enjoy "Warton's Christmas Eve Adventure" by Russell Erickson.
For in January "Toad for Tuesday" by Russell Erickson is a great book.

I read Because of Winn Dixie to my first graders and they LOVED it so I would highly recommend that one. We are reading Charlotte's Web now
