Delightful’s Grade 2 Reading List (Grade 1 by Age)

Books2Below is the list of books that I can verify that Delightul actually completed in her Grade 2 year (age 6-7).  We have been having an issue with Delightful having too many books on the go and taking overly long to finish some of them.  The picture at left is the stack of books that Mr. Chivalry found tucked in and around Delightful’s bed when he was helping her clean her room.  She insists she was reading all of them — at the same time!

A word about this list:  Many of the books on this list were read multiple times.  My original list contains hyperlinks to the homeschool curricula using each book.  The hyperlinks did not carry over into WordPress and I am too pressed for time to put them all in.  Also, the listing of a book does not necessarily imply an endorsement of it.  Many of these books were read by Delightful at relatives’ houses, doctors’ offices, etc.  Some of the books I would definitely not give to my other children to read when they are ready.

Notes:

  • PHSC recommends Storytime with the Millers as a Grade 3 selection while it recommends Wisdom with the Millers for Grade 2. In my opinion, the grade recommendations should be reversed because Storytime with the Millers is an easier read and has a bigger font.
