list_of_class_novels_first_secondTeachers are always seeking advice and recommendations for novels suitable for particular class standards. There are many lists out there, but few are lists recommended by practising classroom teachers. So, in an attempt to compile a list of novels suitable for use in Irish classrooms, at the end of August I asked teachers to complete a short form through the website, based on their classroom experience.

Due to lots of commitments, it’s taken some time to start putting the lists together. However, this is now the second of those lists, focusing on books for first and second classes. It contains a list of twenty-six books, which have been recommended by practising Irish classroom teachers and others.

Hopefully, the list will act as a starting point for teachers who are looking for some new reading material for their classroom. Many of these books will also have lots of associated resources available elsewhere online.
