1st Grade Independent Assigned Reading List

This list consists of K's 30 minutes of independent assigned reading time during school-time.  This is the main thing I love about Classical Education - you read quality books!  The books where I don't note the author, we simply find a child's version of that topic.  These are 4th grade reading level books so they take her longer than her evening fun books.

She started this list in February 2011.
  1. Children's Bible - this is more of devotional time, not a book to check off the list and never read again
  2. Trojan Horse - DK
  3. The Gods and Goddesses of Olympus - Aliki
  4. Pandora - Burleigh
  5. Atalanta's Race: A Greek Myth - Climo
  6. King Midas: The Golden Touch - Demi
  7. Pegasus - Mayer
  8. The Children's Aesop - Calmenson
  9. Egyptian Gods and Goddesses - Barker
  10. Savitri: A Tale of Ancient India - Shepherd
  11. The Five Chinese Brothers - Bishop
  12. Ancient Rome and Pompeii - Osborne
  13. D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths 
  14. Pompeii - Buried Alive - Kunhardt

This concludes K's 1st grade assigned reading list.


  1. I love how you picked your homeschool name! We are rethinking ours, I don't like the one we have. Thanks for your comment on my blog. :)

  2. Thanks for the comment Samantha! We thought long and hard to come up with a name and then decided to go with my husband's family ancestry beginnings to have something unique.
