I just started teaching 1st grade this week. Every day I do a read aloud with the children. This week I have just read a child selected book. However, I would like to start reading a chapter book/novel that would be ongoing, a chapter a day perhaps. Last year I did this with my 2nd graders (James and the Giant Peach, Charlotte's Web, etc). Does anyone have any good ideas/recommendations for appropriate selections for 1st grade? I have a wide range of reading/comprehension levels and obviously want all children to be interested and comprehend.
