    Our reading series will end in mid-May. I plan on leveling my class into two groups and read a different chapterbook with each group. What chapterbooks would you suggest? Thanks!

    In addition to those mentioned above, you might consider: Horrible Harry, Amelia Bedelia, Flat Stanley/Invisible Stanley, Judy Moody, Frog and Toad (for struggling readers)...so many books, so little time left! Let us know what you select! Have fun!

    I agree with the above suggestions in particular Judy Moody, Horrible Harry and Flat Stanley. My Weird School is a goofy series that my son absolutely adores.

    There is an "easy" series of the "Bunnicula" books that my students like. More proficient readers will enjoy "The Magic Finger" by Roald Dahl (not a chapter book, but we break it into sections) and "Freckle Juice". Advanced second graders will enjoy "My Father's Dragon" by Ruth Stiles Gannett and the "Moongobble and Me" series by Bruce Coville.

    The Magic Tree House Series is wonderful! It's great because many times you can make it coincide with what you're learning in history or science. Also, Freckle Juice, Amelia Bedelia (although that would be best at the beginning of the year because it is too easy for advanced second graders), The One in the Middle is the Green Kangaroo, etc.

    Ready Freddy books are not intimidating for those new to chapter books. Magic Tree House is awesome!!!! But have them read them somewhat in order or they won't be able to make sense of some of the characters and events. The books refer to things that happen in books earlier in the series.

    As a chapter book to share I can't go past Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. This is book that children of all ages enjoy. I've read it to children from second to sixth grade.
