    I am looking for ideas for a chapter book read aloud for third grade summer school. We will be in class for about a month.
    Thank you!

    My 3rd graders this year loved Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle and Matilda!
    I also read The Chocolate Touch with one of my reading groups and they thoroughly enjoyed it.

    3rd going into 4th is prime chapter book age. Unless the topic is very obviously too mature or inappropriate for the age, almost any children's chapter book is going to be high interest in my experience. Almost anything by Roald Dahl is a good option; same with Andrew Clements or Judy Blume.

    Others I've read or seen highly recommended:
    - Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
    - Wonder by R. J. Palacio
    - The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster (though this one may have a lot of jokes/wordplay that go over students' heads, especially if they're ELLs)
    - Esperanza Rising by Pam Muñoz Ryan (this was a personal favorite when I was in elementary school)
    - The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
    - Any Fudge series books by Judy Blume (Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, Superfudge, Double Fudge, Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great)
    - Beverly Cleary books - Ramona Quimby, Age 8 etc.
