chapter book to read aloud

Any suggestions of chapter books to read to the class at the beginning of the year? I have a great 10 minute block of time at the end of the day which would be great to read a chapter each day.

i try to start with shorter chapter books to build up their stamina.
try:
lulu and the brontosaurus (hilarious. short, but with ten min blocks it could last a week)
mrs. piggle wiggle (longer but I skip some chapters)
100 dresses (good message)
maybelle in the soup (very cute)

The Witches by Roald Dahl is a fun one My third graders loved it and I didn't read it to my first graders because I was worried it would be too scary. I think it might be okay for second graders.

with the Magic Tree House books. The kids love them! They are filled with factual information and have clues that lead up to a solution. At the end of every 4th book that mystery is solved. It's fun!

My students just love The World According to Humphrey, by Betty Birney. The story is told from point of view of Humphrey, the classroom's pet hamster.

I am reading "The Invention of Hugo Cabret" to my kids and they LOVE it so far! It is great because it teaches them to read the pictures too because half the story is told through the pictures only.

The Boxcar Children. When I read this (and others in the series) it made the kids want to start reading them themselves.

I start the year with the first 4 Marvin Redpost books. The kids love them and the boys find a boy character to get excited about reading. Next I move on to some of the Junie B Jones books. They are funny but after a week or so you get sick of her so you ned to take a break. Then I start with the American Girl books. I read 5 or 6 of the 6 book sets through the year. I go back to Junie B. and I always read Stone Fox too!

Bailey School Kids books! Last year I read several of them to the kids and by then several of them were good enough to read them on their own and started off on a tear.
Some Roald Dahl books.....we read the Fantastic Mr. Fox and they enjoyed that, thought it was hilarious.
Sideways Stories From Wayside School....the chapters are short so it's easy to read a couple.

I like this one because it's a great way to introduce vocabulary study.

What grades do you think this would be appropriate for? I was thinking older, but I hear it's a great story. Haven't had time to read it yet and I wanted to read it before seeing the movie.

I love The Inventions of Hugo Cabret. A lot of the story is told in the pictures so the students would be missing out if read out loud and no way to study pictures.

Snot Stew

Clip to ScrapBook #25

We just finished Snot Stew. It's my number one fav for the beginning of second grade...

Humor
Conflict and conflict resolution
First person point of view
Rural communities
Literal language
'Family'
Pets

The kids loved it. Truly, it was the best part of our day -- perhaps the only time each day that I never had to shush anybody.

Later, when their attention spans are longer, we'll read the Incredible Journey of Edward Tulane.

There are many different books you could read. You could possibly read The Chronicles of Narinia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The Chronicles of Narinia:Prince Caspian. The Mouse and the motorcycle are also some other good books to read. My brother reads the spiderwick chronicles to his second grade students. These are all really good books.
