The books have been flying off the shelves in our classroom library, sometimes to be read and other times to be forgotten at the back of lockers. But one thing is for sure, I have a lot of readers in my life. I was worried about not having the right books for my 7th graders, however, I should have known; many of my favorites are also the favorites of the students. So what have the 7th graders been reading and passing on? Note the varying levels of maturity!
Can’t Look Away by Donna Cooner was a favorite for many.
Even in 7th grade, students still love The Diary of A Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney, as they should.
Everybody seemed to start the year by reading If I Stay by Gayle Forman.
Someone is always reading Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi.
