    We've just finished reading the BFG and then Charlotte's Web. Any suggestions for another pretty long read aloud? No Junie or Magic Tree house or Cam Jansens please---been there done those! :)

    James and the Giant Peach- my students LOVED it! Great characters and vocabulary. Plus, I forgot what a fun story it is...it was neat to read aloud!: :)

    I've read one of the Ramona books so far with my students.

    The Flat Stanley books aren't extremely long, but my students LOVE them and I read a couple of them back to back.

    I like to get in different books for the boys too. Dragon Slayers Academy and Ready, Freddy! books are great. Time Warp Trio, A to Z Mysteries, Jigsaw Jones Mystery, and Adventures of the Bailey School Kids are other series I like to start my kids on. My 2nd graders are really getting into the My Weird School books.

    Ohh, forgot about the chocolate touch. I found Tucker Mouse and Harry Kitten, by the same author as A Cricket in Times Sqaure. The illustrator is Garth Williams of Little House on the Prarie fame.

    I'd never read it, and the language is a bit above them, but they seem to enjoy it.

    My students

    I am reading the Little House series. Girls out number the boys :)lol:) & they all seem to enjoy it very much.

    I also have a nice collection of Christian books for our classroom library. I have bought many of these books for the classroom specifically. I like the Rod and Staff Publishers & Christian Light Education books that they offer. Very strong character books. :angel:
