Last week we shared our choices for Tigger’s fifth grade homeschool reading list. Today, I’m sharing our second reading list homeschool picks for Pooh!
Pooh is at a point in his reading journey when he’s definitely ready to take on some chapter books on his own. However, I still prefer to read most of our books together, so that he will slow down and really absorb the story. Sometimes he tends to rush through a book and only pick out the parts that are instantly amusing to him.
So we’ll be covering these books in-depth this year. Take a look at our choices for second grade below!
Choosing a Reading List for Second Grade
First grade was really a stepping stone that helped Pooh become a more fluent reader. And because we took a short break to try public school, he got a chance to read for his class pretty often. I really think that’s helped him step outside the box and take on more challenging books.
So I wanted him to read some books with me this year and some on his own as well. He likes mysteries and funny stories and this list features plenty of both!
Our Second Grade Reading List Homeschool Picks
2. Oliver Twist
3. Tales of a Fourth-Grade Nothing (Yes, I realize the title character is in fourth grade. But I think Pooh will relate very well to Fudge…lol.)

9. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

Reading is so important. My third grade age daughter still loves to have read aloud time. We are able to on many adventures together when we open a book.
