Well, we’re down to our final reading list for the new school year and it’s time to show off our books for first grade! Roo is reading much more fluently than he was last year, but he’s still not really a leisure reader. He’ll read when I tell him to, but he’d rather play than anything else. Of course, he is six. 🙂
But I really want to encourage him to develop the habit of reading for fun, so I’ve selected stories he can read on his own and stories we’ll read together. Here are our first grade reading list homeschool picks for this year!
Our First Grade Reading List Homeschool Picks
Roo, like many young boys, loves construction, so I included a book with that theme. I also included a couple of books that are funny, since those hold his attention the best.
Several of the books below will be part of unit studies we’ll be completing as a family, so they’ll fit in nicely with some of our themes.
1. Pete the Cat: Construction Destruction
2. Ocean Babies
5. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
7. The Complete Tales of Peter Rabbit
8. Aesop’s Fables for Children
And those are our first grade reading list homeschool picks! Do you have any “must-read” books for first grade? Share your suggestions in the comments!
