My favorite classroom chapter book read alouds for the whole year

  I love to do read alouds with my class. We do picture book read alouds every day, but we also love to read chapter books. My students love to have a story read to them that lasts over several days. I like to read aloud our chapter books right after lunch. It really helps them to calm down after lunchtime. We also read for a few minutes right before our tidy-up time before going home. Today we are going to look at some of my favorite chapter books to read to my class throughout the year.

    The first book that I love to read at the start of the year is The Year of Billy Miller. This is a perfect story for my second graders. It is about a second grader and goes through his whole year in second grade. My students love hearing what the second graders do in the book. 

    The next book that I love to read is Wonder. This book really helps students learn to accept everyone the way they are. I love the message that this book has. It is another great book to start the year. 

    Next on the list is Ramona Quimby, Age 8. This is a fun book to read. It shows Ramona always getting into mischief. My students are always laughing through this book. I also love to read this book because it is part of a series and it gets my students excited to read the rest of the books. 

    The next book that is a class favorite is Save Me A Seat. This book is about two students from very different backgrounds that become friends and start sitting together at lunch. This is another story that has a great message. 

    Another fun book for your classroom read alouds is The Lemonade War. This story is great and has lots of life lessons about starting a business and having math skills. My students love to follow along and learn about the brother and sister and how they are going to sell their lemonade and make money. This is another book that is part of a series, so it always gets my students excited about reading the rest of the books. 

    This next book is one of my favorite books to read to my class. Mr. Popper’s Penguins is another book that is just a fun story that gets my students laughing. My students love this story and all the things that happen to the penguins. 

    This is another great book to read aloud to your class. Front Desk is about an immigrant family and their struggles of being in a new country. I love this story and what it teaches. This is always a favorite of my class. 

    Another great book to read to your class is From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. This is a fun mystery that takes two kids into a famous museum. This book is filled with fun adventures and mysteries all throughout. This is a book that most students have never heard of but after reading it as a class, they always want to explore it again and again on their own. 

    The One and Only Ivan is another great book to read to your class. This is a sweet story but also has some sad parts as well. One of my students favorite activities is to watch the movie after we finish reading the book. This book also has a sequel that my students are always excited to read and find out more information about the characters. 

    The last book on my list of must reads is Sideways Stories from Wayside School. This is a fun story that will get your students laughing. The school was accidentally built sideways and the stories that go with that are fun. This book is also the start of a series, which is something that I love because it gets my students excited to read the rest of the books. 

   Reading chapter books with my class are some of my favorite times with my class. I love the adventures that we get to enjoy together with a good book.  Do you read chapter books with your students? What are your favorite chapter books to read with your class?
