Maybe somewhere it has already been posted BUT I want to start reading something to my kids daily or weekly at the end of the day...When I did Second at another school (about 10 years ago) we did Indian in the Cupboard, For the Love of Winn Dixie and something else...but are there any you guys love. Actually we all disliked Winn Dixie...but did it anyway. Charlotte's Web is great BUT our 3rd grade is using it so I don't want to spoil it. TIA!

The miraculous adventures of Edward Tulane
Despereaux (reading this now and the conversations from the kids are amazing)
James and the giant peach
Another teacher reads all the E. B. White books
Rudyard kiplings Just So stories, but get a kid version as the originals are sounding dated
The wizard of Oz
I tried chronicles of narnia once, but it really depends on the class. That particular year the kids were really high in reading.

I just finished reading Charlotte's Web. A boy in my class said, "Mrs. D. I think I am getting sick over this." We had just read that Charlotte was languishing and the rat told Wilbur that Mr. Zuckerman was going to take a knife to him. Many had seen the movie and few had ever heard the book read to them. I am taking a class that is talking about how important rereads are. So I would not worry about when they read it in 3rd grade. One girl brought a copy of Charlotte's web from home to follow along as I read. I have six children doing this. I think I may read aloud from Andrew Clements next and I have extra copies in the room if they want to follow along.



I like Ramona books, Judy Blume's Fudge series, EB White books, Hank the Cowdog books, Sideways Stories from Wayside School, Sarah Plain and Tall just a few I can think of off the top of my head.

I also like the Ramona books, and maybe "The Best School Year Ever". (If they like it, you can tell them there is a Christmas version they could read too.)

Here are some kid favorites that I try to read every year:

All About Sam
Gooney Bird Greene
Tornado
My Father's Dragon
Stories that Julian Tells
World According to Humphrey

I also read Despereaux, but realize that there's a lot to this book and it may be better for third, fourth graders. My second graders always enjoy it, but there are many kids who don't "get it" the way older kids might. I save it for the end of the year. I definitely don't think Winn Dixie is meant for second grade.

The World According to Humphrey by Betty Birney - I love this and the kids do, too! It's a great read right now because it takes place in a school at Halloween

Elliott's Park Series - they are short but the kids love them

Gooseberry Park- such a sweet story - especially in the winter

Hank the Cowdog series if you have a lot of boys! I usually save this for the spring and explain that Hank says some words that only mature 2nd graders can hear because they are not always school appropriate (stupid, pee, etc.)

Freedie Fornortner series

My class thought Lulu Walks the Dogs by Judith Viorst was hilarious. they even started to write like her and several kids bought the book from the book club. They want more of Lulu.
