I am trying to put together a reading list of books that we can read throughout the year. For my little guy, it would be on top of AAR, but I want to add in fun projects with it too. So far my list with him is:
Stone Soup (and I have a ton of stuff with this one - I'm excited about it!)
*I don't know the name, but its about a Turnip that takes a bunch of people to pull out of the ground....*
Bremen Town Musicians
Very Hungry Caterpillar
I know an Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly
True Story of the 3 Little Pigs
Fairy Tale News
Mind Your Manners B.B. Wolf (these last 3 to read together and do some unit with them??)
I'd have 10 stories...is it too little to stretch each story out over 3 weeks? Is there anymore I should add??
For Jamie I should note: We've had her tested for dyslexia, but we were told she is not dyslexic. However, she consistantly mixes letters, and struggles to read - there is little or no comprehension because she is spending the time deciphering. We are going to get her tested for Irlen's syndrome, but we're still waiting to hear back to schedule an appt.
So...for the list...
Number The Stars
Roll of THunder Hear My Cry
Bridge to Terabithia
A Wrinkle in Time
The BLack Cauldron
Tale of Despereux
The Whipping Boy
Narnia Series (with the series, we'd read the first one, hopefully peak her interest, and then she can read the rest on her own...if all goes well...)
What the Dickens: The Story of a Rogue Tooth Fairy
Are the other books that would be good...any project ideas? I'd hate for her to just have to read and then answer comprehension questions... Because we've always had such a horrible time with reading, I did not plan a reading/lit curriculum so much for her this year, but I do want her to read still...
