Required Reading List

Required Reading

 2019-2020 school year


We will be reading various novels throughout the school year. Students need their own copies of each of these books, so they may take notes, highlight and mark up their copies as we are reading and learning. I have listed the books we will be reading this school year.


Second and Third Grades

Fourth and Fifth Grades



The One and Only Ivan-

By: Katherine Applegate


By: Louis Sachar

Lincoln and His Boys-

By: Rosemary Wells


By: Gary Paulsen

Charlotte’s Web-

By: E.B. White

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe-

By: C.S. Lewis




In addition to the novels listed above, during the final 9 weeks of school (After Spring Break), students will complete a book report project on a grade-appropriate book of their choice. This needs to be a book that they have NOT previously read before.
