Easter books for 2nd graders
A read-aloud is a great way to engage your students in a story. It allows them to follow along and see the characters come to life.
Plus, it’s a great opportunity for you to model reading fluency and expression.
I like to choose books that are slightly above my student’s independent reading level in order to introduce more challenging vocabulary words and sentence structures.
Kids can listen without having to work through these things themselves.
Books are a big part of childhood. Good books teach kids to read, introduce them to new worlds, and are just plain fun!
Read on to discover our favorite Easter books for children ages 6-8. You should be able to find these books at your local library or used bookstore.
If you can’t find the books locally, you can order them from Amazon to be delivered directly to your front door.
