Third Grade Reading List

This is the reading list that I have prepared for ds8 who will be entering 3rd grade.  Many of these books come from the Sonlight Advanced Reader Package for Core 2

Along Came a Dog

The Children of the Noisy Village

Emily’s Runaway Imagination

Encyclopedia Brown


Henry and Ribsy

The King’s Equal

Little House on Rocky Ridge

A Llama in the Family

Lumber Camp Library

Marco Polo

McBroom’s Wonderful One-Acre Farm

Misty of Chincoteague

More Stories from Grandma’s Attic

Mustang, Wild Spirit of the West

Ralph S Mouse

The Toothpaste Millionaire

The Whipping Boy


Ten Boys Who Changed the World

African Adventures

Rainforest Adventures

Three Dollar Mule

Outback Adventures

I basically created a chart that listed these books, with boxes to mark the date the books were completed and a rating for each book.  This chart is posted on the refrigerator.  When ds8 completes one of the books on the list, he gives me a brief synopsis (or narration) of the book and gives the book a rating (1-5 stars).  At the end of the year, we have a handy dandy one page sheet that lists all of the “required” books that ds8 has read that can be filed in his portfolio.

I'm bookmarking this for my 7 year old. Thanks! I like your rating system and keeping up with what he's read, also. I should really do that.
