For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Reading List for the Coming School Year

Since my 2nd grader reads way above grade level, for this year I have decided to not buy any reading curriculum but just focus on actual reading. So I am compiling a reading list for him. He is starting on it already. A lot of it he will read while listening to the audiobook because he is not a big fiction book lover, he much rather reads fact books.

As I mentioned before I will try to have him narrate some of the chapters, or the whole book to me. As well, I will use our history literature line up books from TOG to have him practice reading aloud.

Zach's reading list for 2010-2011

Charlotte's Web
Stuart Little
The Little Prince
Peter Pan
When the Sidewalk Ends (repeat)
The Courage of Sarah Noble
Chronicles of Narnia
The Hobbit
The 3 Musketeers
Robin Hood
Robinson Crusoe
The Story of King Arthur
Pilgrim's Progress (children's version)
The adventures of Tom Sawyer (repeat)
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (repeat)

Here is our starter list. Follow us as I will add them to the Literature Corner page of the blog as we go through them.

We of course always have pictures books at home too. . .

You have a great book list. I never did a reading curriculum with my oldest either. As soon as she was done with phonics, she read books.

Those are great books. I've never used a reading curriculum either. Your son is reading well above grade level for him to be able to read some of these!

Love your books list! I need to sit down and make one for my kids also. Stopping by from iFellowship!
