    i'm so terrible with names of authors and books. i usually go into barnes & nobles and tell them that i'm looking for this book about a girl and the cover is orange with a black stripe on the side. anyways, i finally found the author that i've been looking for. katie wood ray wrote wondrous words. it's a teacher book but it talks about all of her wonderful books that she enjoys reading. she makes all sorts of stacks (themes) and describes each one. after reading her book, i went out and bought a bunch more books.

    They're probably too advanced for 2nd grade, but I love reading Holes and Loser.

    Bunnicula by James Howe is a fun book to read aloud! It has great vocabulary and funny instances where words like steak and stake get mixed up.

    Knuffle Bunny (funny :) ) - Mo Willems
    The Alexander series - Judith Viorst

    My daughter who is going into 2nd grade has really been into the Cam Jansen books and the Bailey School Kids books this summer.

    There are just to many to choose!

    Great picture books:

    Stranger in the woods
    Lost in the Woods

    These book are real pictures of wildlife with a great storyline. The vocabulary is unbelieveable and should be in EVERY teacher's library!
    Both of these movies had matching DVD made and my students LOVE them!!!!

    We're going on a Bear Hunt
    Miss Nelson is Missing

    Great books to teach writing:
    Dear Mrs. LaRue
    I Wanna Iguana
    Dear Mr. Blueberry
    Click Clack Moo- Cows that Type

    (There are more, but these were my students' favorites!

    of course there are many more but as I was packing away my books I remember my students re-reading these over and over!

    An oldie but goodie for upper elementary students is My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George. I used to worry about some of the kids getting ideas (about running away), but they just seem to get wrapped up in the story!

    I LOVE Sweet Dream Pie by Audrey Wood. I love the illustrations by Mark Teague. It is great for ADJECTIVES!
