This year, I homeschooled both Bailey and Dalton. All of our read alouds were done as a group. Bailey was in 6th grade and Dalton was in 2nd.
We read aloud ...
Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Little House on the Prarie by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder
When Santa Fell to Earth by Cornelia Funk
Sarah Plain and Tall by Patricia Maclachan
Skylark by Patricia Maclachan
Peter Pan by Lisa Mullarkey
The Tale of Despereaux by Kate Dicamillo (read this summer).
The boys enjoyed them all except Farmer Boy. I never thought we would get through that book.
I could never name all the books they read on there own as Free Reading.
Dalton read "readers" so he had a different little book everyday and sometimes 3 or 4.
I'll attempt to list a few of the ones that Bailey read on his own during Free Reading...
George's Secret Key to the Universe by Lucy & Stephen Hawking
George's Cosmic Treasure Hunt by Lucy & Stephen Hawking
George and the Big Bang by Lucy & Stephen Hawking
He really loved those!
He read a dozen or more of the Horrid Henry Books by Francesca Simon; and about the same amount or more of the Bailey School Kids books by Marcia T. Jones and Debbie Dadey. A couple of the Magic Tree House books by Mary Pope Osborne.
Spaceheadz by Jon Scieszka
Vordak the Incomprehensible: Rule the School
Vordak the Incomprehensible: How to Grow Up and Rule the World
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel by Jeff Kinney
The Unusual Mind of Vincent Shadow by Tim Kehoe
Super Fudge by Judy Blume
Henry and the Paper Route by Beverly Cleary
and even a few Junie B. Jones books.
That is all I have listed in my notes. I know he read more on his own time, but I didn't keep up with those.
Hope this helps someone out! :)
