    Hello! I am new to second grade this year (used to teach K). What chapeter books do you recommend for second graders during guided reading? Also, any titles that your students LOVE to read? Any lists that go with common core would be even more helpful!

    Thanks for any help!

    I only used one chapter book with my very high reading group last year. We did Freckle Juice. Guided Reading is definitely not my strongest subject to teach. I hope others respond to this because I would love some other options. However, my group this year is going to be very low compared to last year so I am not expecting to do chapter books at all!

    For guided reading, it really depends on where the kids are. Some years, I only have one group reading chapter books, some years I have two groups doing chapter books. My high group I usually use Junie B. Jones, Magic Tree House, or Matilda. If I have a higher middle group as well I will use Horrible Harry.
