Need read aloud ideas for third grade

So far this year I've read Roald Dahl's BFG (Which they LOVED) and Matilda.
Any other ideas? I want the book to be funny and keep them as interested as the previous two. I have RD's The Witches which I love to read but I was interested in any other ideas you may have.

We've read aloud these four and the kids loved them all.

We're just finishing Indian in the Cupboard, and we've read Something Upstairs by Avi, and Lunch Money by Andrew Clements. I thought the Avi book would be too difficult for the kids to understand, but they loved it. Next we'll read another Anderew Clements titled The Report Card.

I've always loved Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing as well, but I may save that for a guided reading group.

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, by Kate DiCamillo is wonderful. I always read The Twits and George's Marvelous Medicine by Roal Dahl- they are quick reads and enormously entertaining. We have also read Shiloh by (?) Phyllis Naylor Reynolds or Reynolds Naylor? They really got into that one and it creates some really interesting ethical discussions with the class. My kids love Patricia Polacco's books....and for some strange reason, they ADORED Loser, by Jerry Spinelli.

I read the Mouse and the Motorcycle and the kids really enjoyed it. There is a sequal to it that I will probably read to them as well. I loved the movie of the Indian and the Cupboard, but have never read the book. My own kids loved the movie too. I am also going to try to read The Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler (sp). This book I read as a kid and remember liking it.
I just finished Wild Man Island and the kids weren't overly thrilled with it. I read it last year and the kids liked it and it goes well with one of our reading themes. I don't think I'll read it again next year.

I always read The Indian in the Cupboard. I've had kids ask their parents to buy the sequels after I've read it. Kids love the Sideways stories from Wayside School. I read some of the Beverly Cleary books. I also challenge them with Julie of the Wolves and The Island of the Blue Dolphins. There are so many good read alouds.

Mystudents love Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. I read the junior editions that are written in language easier to read than the old original copy. They love it and it is a classic. Charlotte's Web, Mr. Popper's Penguins, Upchuck and Rotten Willy.

This Year's Read Alouds
Old 03-19-2007, 07:06 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #10

This year, I have done the following books as read alouds:

Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
Muggie Maggie by Beverly Cleary
Bunnicula by James Howe
The Celery Stalks at Midnight by James Howe
The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary

The kids' favorite were probably Bunniula and The Mouse and the Motorcycle.

Right now I'm reading Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O'Brien. I found the book very well-written and with just enough mystery. It is based on the movie The Secret of NIMH, which I really loved as a child. Only two of my students have actually seen the movie, so it makes it much more of a mystery. My kids keep talking about what they think NIMH stands for. At the end of the year, I think this will be most kids' favorite read aloud.

Also, when it gets close to the end of the year, I read Encyclopedia Brown books by Donald Sobol, because each chapter is its own short mystery that Encyclopedia solves. That way, we don't end the year in the middle of a read aloud.

Our Read Alouds

Clip to ScrapBook #11

We read A LOT of read alouds. I like to read the first books from different series because then the kids really get into the series. Here's what we've done so far (that I can remember):
- Bunnicula (Halloween)
- Hank Zipzer: Niagra Falls or Does It? (Great 1st book from series
about a kid with ADD
- Judy Moody (Was In a Mood, Not a Good Mood, a Bad Mood)
- How to Eat Fried Worms
- Sideways Stories From Wayside School
- Mississippi Bridge (for Black History Month)
- The Hidden Stairs (1st book from Secrets of Droon Series)
- Bridge to Terabithia (what we're working on right now)
- Ramona Quimby, Age 8
- LOTS of picture books around Christmas & Thanksgiving (there's a
Christmas book about Stuart Murphy saving Christmas that they
LOVED!)

Here are some of the ones we're going to start reading soon:
- Geronimo Stilton#1 - Lost Treasure of Emerald Eye
- Mostly Ghostly #1
- Katie Kazoo #1
- The Kid in the Red Jacket
- Gentle's Holler (takes place where we're from)

That's all I can think of right now...I hope that it helps!

Frindle, Judy Moody, The Magician's Nephew, The Tale of Desperoux, The Bad Beginning and Goosed. My kids love Bill Wallace and Andrew Clements books every year. Right now I am reading Knight's Tale by Edward Eager. He was a new find for me this year and I think my kids will really enjoy the book.

The next book I'll read was new for me last year and I got the suggestion from here. It is called "The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles" and it is an awesome book. It has great visualization and wonderful descriptions in it. My kids enjoyed it last year and I'll be reading it when I finish the Knight's Tale. I like to try to find books that the kids have never heard of and wouldn't necessarily try on their own. I also really like to introduce series or authors so the kids get motivated to try new books.

My kids loved hearing the adventures of FUDGIE!!!
While it isn't funny-- we are reading Sign of the Beaver
right now since we are doing Native American and
Early American communities. I was looking for something
different. They are so engrossed in the story, I was amazed!
We also read Muggie Maggie and Ramona, Age 8.
I plan to read Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH later.
Not always funny, but somewhat lighthearted.
We are reading Chocolate Touch as a group.
Oh- we also will be reading Freckle Juice, later.

I know this will probably be shot down - but my class absolutely loved the Magic Tree House Books at the beginning of the year and then we progressed through Charlotte's Web as well as some non-fiction read alouds too- basically related to the topic being covered in Science or Social Studies - gotta to squeeze those in with shared reading and read aloud....during the day!

My school had a book fair this week and I picked up "A Dog's Life- the Autobiography of a Stray". HOLY SMOKE! I read it on Tuesday and began reading it aloud on Friday and my kids love it. It is the story of a stray dog, told from the point of view of the dog. It is gorgeously written and unfortunately, I can't remember the author's name!

Fig Pudding by Ralph Fletcher

The narrator of this book is a fifth grade boy, who is the oldest of six kids. The story follows him through a year with his family. It's a great interactive read aloud book because the main character deals with the many emotions of being part of a big family.

Chapter books I read aloud and use for modeling comprehension strategies are:

The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate Dicamillo
(Comparing and contrasting these books works so well. The former used to be my favorite book, but the latter is a close second.)

Because of Winn Dixie and The Tale of Despereaux both by Kate Dicamillo

Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher and the sequel Jennifer Murdley’s Toad by Bruce Coville

The Castle in the Attic and its sequel The Battle for the Castle by Elizabeth Winthrop

My kids loved The Wizard of Oz, many had no idea that it was a book! We then watched the movie, which was fun too!
Some new ones this year that my students enjoyed were Clementine, a Ramona type story with a few others in the series. The World According to Humphrey by Briney was great. It is told by a hamster who goes home with a different child each weekend and learns about their family. Really cute.

So many great books listed here! I've done several already mentioned: Chocolate Touch, Wayside School, Magic Finger (Roald Dahl), but no one has mentioned the American Chillers series by Johnathan Rand. My students LOVED Terrifying Toys of Tennessee, but after reading several with my son, I think I will read aloud Poisonous Pythons of Pennsylvania next year. Every one we've read is great, though.

My students love Matilda by Roald Dahl - we begin the year with that one. Then I read Because of Winn Dixie, The Grand Escape by Dick King-Smith (the adventures of two house cats that escape) - the kids really love it! Owls in the Family (by Farley Mowat), James and the Giant Peach - another Dahl book - great book too! Now we are reading The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane - another favorite.

Reading aloud to my students after lunch is my favorite part of my day!

Try the book Prince of The Pond by Donna Jo Napoli. It is about a prince that gets turned into a frog and has to adjust to life as a frog, including trying to talk with his frog tongue. My students always love hearing how Pin (the prince) tries to say things.

I like to start the year with some of Mike Thaler's Black Lagoon books. Then I read The Best (Worst) School Year Ever by Barbara Robinson. I have the kids do the Compliments for Classmates activity that the class in the story does. We make it a year-long project. My Halloween favorite is House on Hackman's Hill by Joan Lowery Nixon. Every chapter ends with a cliffhanger. I was surprised at how well the kids liked Jean Craighead George's My Side of the Mountain. They even wanted me to read two sequels to it. Thanks for posting the question. I've gotten a lot of good ideas!

I always start the year with two oldies:
Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle by Betty McDonald and Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren. The kids absolutely love them both. Then we move on to Poppy by Avi, The Cricket in Times Square by George Seldon, and currently reading The Enormous Egg by Oliver Butterworth. Getting ready for Charlotte's Web, Tales of Despereaux, and who knows. (It seems besides the first two, they all have rodents in them. Odd!) I try to find oldies but goodies.

I always read Because of Winn Dixie and Tales of Despereaux.
Red Dog by Bill Wallace was a class favorite.
Peter and the Starcatchers is long, but loved too.
Others I have read have been, Secret Garden, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, and The War with Grandpa.

I am always looking for more ideas, because I can't read some of the more popular "classical" books because they are off limits. (We do lit set studies at our school).

But you should check out the author Micheal Morpurgo. He is an english school teacher turned author and has written tons of children's books. He really has some fantastic stories covering a vast amount of subject matters from fiction to fact based, for kids for all ages so I wouldn't know where to start! Steven Speilberg has become his latest fan and is developing his book 'War Horse' into a film. He would be a great addition to your library...and no I'm not on commission ha! Here's a link to his website

If your students loved The Tale of Desperaux, they will absolutely love The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, also by the same author, Kate DeCamillo. I have read it to my students for the past seven years and love it more every time! It's a wonderful story of hope and love, yet it's funny and adventurous at the same time. I guarantee you will enjoy the book just as much, if not more, than your students!

Since I am getting so many great ideas here I thought I would share two stories that my class has added to their list of favorites recently.

Smells Like Dog by Suzanne Selfors
Liberty Porter, First Daughter by Julie DeVillers

My 3rd grade teacher read aloud "Mrs Piggle Wiggle" in 1963 and I have read it aloud to all of my third grade classes ever since 1978! I also love Roald Dahl, Bill Wallace, Andrew Clements, Ralph Fletcher, & Kyle Mewburn's (of New Zealand) chapter books.
