Agent J's Kindergarten Reading List

I’d like to subtitle this one, Holy Crap I Thought Agent E Read A Lot of Books.

For Agent J’s year as the self-proclaimed Best Kindergarten Student Ever, we took a pretty relaxed approach. (You can read about it in the post Kindergarten, Agent J Style.)


Mostly we “ worked on" reading, a little math, and whatever she gleaned from listening to and reading along with her second grade sister’s studies. 

Although to be perfectly honest, we didn’t really “work on” anything . . . just kind of followed her interests, which happened to mostly involve reading. Had she been all over math instead, we probably would have pursued that more intently. 

She seems to be getting more interested in math now, so we’ll likely tackle that as we begin first grade. (From what I recall, Agent E also kind of went through her reading “spurt” first and then became more interested in numbers.)


So, for the purpose of this summary I’m just focusing on books, and sharing a list of what she read from July 2013 to May 2014.

Granted, most of these are way shorter than the books on Agent E’s list. However, as the school year progressed she improved her reading quite a bit, and read several longer titles. 

She started back in July with very basic stories (e.g., Bob Books, board books, level one readers), then moved on to early chapter books (e.g., Poppleton, Mr. Putter, Henry and Mudge), and toward the end of the year was reading longer books (e.g., Junie B. Jones, Captain Underpants, Bad Kitty, Disney Fairies).

She read a lot of paperback “character” books . . . think the Curious George stories, stories based on television shows (e.g., Dora, Diego, Backyardigans), and My Little Pony . . . longer than a simple board book but not quite a chapter book.

Now she is becoming interested in some of the same books Agent E is reading (e.g., Magic Tree House, American Girl) but these are still a bit difficult for her. I have no doubt she’ll be breezing through them by the end of first grade, though.


I should add here that like her sister, Agent J had a lot of “repeats” in her book list. The original total was 452, so 63 titles read twice.

Anyhoo . . . here’s a list of the 389 books Agent J finished this school year (repeats removed, hopefully):

We do not have specific plans for our first grade studies as of yet. However, if Agent J is involved I guarantee it will be spectacular, if not a little crazy.

Second Grade Review: Reading and Writing

So I had this brilliant plan that I would keep track of every book Agent E read in second grade. And I did pretty well, including most of what she read from July 2013 through May 2014 (the first 11 months of our year-round school year).

These are only books she read for fun . . . not specifically related to a particular study subject (e.g., space, the body, math).

I didnt realize how much work this would actually be, but once I started I pressed through. After combining all my monthly notes into one document, I had 358 titles.

There were 50 repeats . . . titles we took out of the library twice, several months apart. Yes; on purpose. This did not surprise me, because I would totally do the same thing. If I really like a book (or movie) or maybe just didn’t feel like I “got” everything the first time, I need to read (see) it again. Agent E is the same way. 

That means we were “down to” 308. 

Where you'll find Agent E at least a couple hours a day
As far as page count/difficulty, I would say at least half (maybe more) are pretty typical chapter books for 2nd-4th grade-ish range, anywhere from 75-125 pages with a few (or several) pictures depending on the series. Some are shorter paperback books based on a character or television show. Many are the 1-4 leveled readers, mostly the 3-4 range, but if she found a series she liked (e.g., the ones based on Star Wars) we read them all, even the “easy” ones. A few longer reads (more like 100-200 pages) as well as some random titles I wouldn’t have read until much later made there way in as well.

We also worked a bit this year on keeping a journal, cursive writing (she can read it better than she can write it), grammar, parts of speech, vocabulary, and spelling. However, we didn’t exactly have “lessons” for any of these topics . . . it was more of a natural unfolding from all the reading and chatting about said reading.

Anyway, here are the 308 books she read this year, in alphabetical order (with all duplicates removed, hopefully).

Our plan for third grade is to incorporate more writing time . . . she doesn’t seem to be as interested in composing stories as she is in reading them, but I’m hoping that will spark soon. She does, however, seem to have a good grasp on grammar and spelling and when things just “sound right.” 

As far as what we would do differently, I’m not sure. She seems to be pretty content with the current system of Take a Bazillion Books Out of the Library and Read Them Whenever You Feel Like It. I’d say we’ll probably continue doing that.
