    I like to read aloud to my students for a little bit after lunch. What are you going to start your year with as far as chapter books go?

    I read Frindleby Andrew Clements to my class last year and they loved it. They also enjoyed the Cam Jansen series. I'm also looking for some good chapter books for this year.

    Because of Winn Dixie, Matilda, Flat Stanley, one book from many series such as: Magic Tree House, Bailey School Kids, Pee Wee Scouts, Cam Jansen, Nate the Great, Boxcar Children, ect.
    I've thought about Spiderwick, have you read them?

    Muggie Maggie, Flat Stanley, Winn Dixie, Charlotte's Web, Judy Blume books, Bailey School Kids, and I have all the JBJ books. I don't personally like JBJ books for read alouds b/c of all the grammatical errors, but the kids like to read them independently.

    I read almost all the books others have mentioned... I always start with Charlotte's Web though. Most kids know the story, but love hearing it again... plus it's an awesome way to talk about friendship and social skills at the beginning of the year. We talk about the story all year long too.

    I'm a huge fan of the Spiderwick series. My students loved the first book and pleaded with me to continue reading the series. I read the next two and left them to read the rest with their families. There is a little violence (second book) and a few choice words from the main character's 13 year old sister. I plan on reading the books a little earlier this year, before the movie comes out in February.

    Besides Magic Tree House, Junie B., and A-Z Mysteries, I love to read The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe to my students also.

    I am going to try something new this year. I bought a few of the Choose Your Own Adventure books from Amazon (remembered loving them as a kid) and I am going to read those, drawing sticks to give kids the opportunity to choose what happens next. My 3 year old has been enjoying them!

    After that, my old stand-bys, Roald Dahl books-LOVE The Twits and Charlie and the Choc Factory.

    I loved Choose Your Own Adventure books too. I kept flipping to find the best ending instead of reading it through. I may use your idea!

    I LOVE Miss Daisy is Crazy, and the whole My Weird School series. This is also my first chapter book read aloud during the year. I also like reading Bunnicula, the Cam Jansen series, Horrible Harry series, The Boy Who Turned into A TV Set, Freckle Juice, The One in the Middle is the Green Kangaroo, and the Katie Kazoo, Switcheroo series. And this is just my list for the first half of the year! I have my read-aloud stack in my closet at school. I'll post more suggestions if anyone would like them.

    I like Flat Stanley because it is shorter for the beginning of the year.
    I also have read Misty of Chincoteague, Poppy(AWESOME BOOK!), Skinnybones, Mr. Popper's Penguins, and The Magic Treehouse.
