Read Aloud Chapter Books

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am a first year teacher in a second grade classroom... we do a short read aloud time/book study as part of our day before lunch time. I am desperately looking for ideas on more chapter books to read to my kids! Does anyone have any suggestions of good chapter book reads that we can dive into? Or maybe of where I could find a book list? Thanks!!

My first graders love:

Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing
Mouse and the Motorcycle (along with the other books about Ralph the Mouse: Runaway Ralph and Ralph S. Mouse
Socks

Their very very favorite is The Miraculous Adventures of Edward Tulane. We are reading it right now, and they LOVE read aloud time. I've read this book for the last 3 years, and I love it as much too.

Have you ever heard of The Read Aloud Handbook by Jim Trealease? He has a whole "treasury" of great read-aloud books!

I teach third, but kids of all ages LOVE "The Witches" by Roald Dahl. It's my students' favorite read aloud each year!

My kids in 2nd love the Gooney Bird series. You can even incorporate writing with it as Gooney Bird tells stories.(you'll see what I mean if you read them). We are now reading Gooney the Fabulous and learning about writing Fables with it. I just ordered the newest one - but haven't told my class yet or they'd drive me crazy asking when it was coming!! I ditto a lot of the books previous posters have mentioned.

There are many good suggestions here, so I won't create a list. However, I do want to urge you to think carefully about your choices, so that you're providing a balance of genres. I think fantasy (even judging from the suggestions here) is often overdone, for example. Besides covering a variety of genres, also give equal treatment to strong male/female characters, and consider race and even age (find stories with strong elderly characters).

All of these are great books. To make your life easier in general, if you aren't using bookwizard you need to be. You can search by topic, type of book, reading level, etc. Make a list and refer to it throughout the year.

I teach K-2 and they love Junie B. Jones. I have also been reading some of the books from the Ready Freddy series (about a first grade boy).
