Does anyone know of a good booklist for Grade 5 Readers? I was going to use Heart of Dakota’s because her book choices are wonderful, however our library doesn’t carry a good portion of them, even with inter-library loan. I’m looking for CM quality books, no twaddle, no filfth. Thanks!MonicaParticipant
If you look under “Our Curriculum” on the top of this page, you will find, among many other things, literature suggestions for various ages.CrystalParticipant
We have used Honey for a Childs Heart to find good age appropriate material. We have had great success with finding them at our library. I know it may not be very CM, but my kids also enjoyed the McGuffy readers for many years.
Thank you Monica but I am looking for readers, not read alouds :). Great link though!
Crystal, I have that book I will check it! That would be great if it has readers in it.sarah2106Participant
I often look at Sonlight books lists for ideas. This is also a great list. It is Sonlight books broken into time period and by grade level.Wings2flyParticipant
We use mostly CM, but I was surprised in recent years to like readers from CLE (Calls to Courage is 6th grade reader) and the Pathway readers (Step by Step for 6th grade). Sorry I don’t remember the 5th grade titles. But they are worth checking into. There are samples online as pdf files and at Rainbow Resource. They have great character training and a variety of literature styles plus some poetry and Bible Scripture. I assign a reader twice per week. Otherwise, for chapter books I have used catalogs from Sonlight and MFW, but I read the one and two star reviews on Amazon, too. If you let us know better what you are looking for, we can give specific recommendations.MonicaParticipant
I guess I totally missed the boat on this one. My kids have never done readers – I wasn’t even sure what you meant. We strictly do books around the house and eventually chapter books (either that I assign or they choose).sarah2106Participant
Oops, I totally missed it to, like Monica, haha
I thought you meant 5th grade books for the student to read, chapter books.
We don’t do “readers” either, like pathway readers, once reading gets easier.Morgan1Participant
On the rod and staff website from milestone books they have the 5-8 grade pathway readers. Very wholesome books. The also have Christian light readers. Much longer books but very wholesome still. My son uses both.BekParticipant
McGuffey’s Readers go from 1-12 and a complete set is not expensive, or you can print them off for free.
Thanks everyone! And by readers I do mean chapter books :).
