Literature Recs in WRTR (Spalding)


Recommended Posts

Does anyone use the literature recommendations in the WRTR, Spalding Method?


There is a section of literature recommended for each grade in the WRTR and it lists when the children should read them based off of where they are in the spelling list.


Some examples are:

1st grade: Andy and the Lion, James Dougherty

Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak


2nd grade:

The Littles, John Peterson


3rd grade:

Mr Popper's Penguins, Richard Atwater


I was thinking of checking out 3-5 per week starting in the K-1 section and asking DS1 to read them. Thoughts? Anyone BTDT with this list?
