    Read alouds for 7th grade


    Would anyone be interested in sharing readalouds for 7th grade? We have slowed on readalouds and audiobooks because upper middle school is tough from a reading level and content standpoint. Last year we enjoyed Oliver Twist, Across Five Aprils, and Animal Farm, among others, on audiobook. It's a great opportunity to stretch. I take the time to pause and look up vocabulary or discuss what is happening.
    I'm trying to compile a list for next year, and I'd be very interested in learning what others have done and enjoyed for this grade level (age 12).

    At a virtual conference this spring, I heard Mr. Cothran recommend The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be by Farley Mowatt. We just finished it and loved it.

      If you are doing the 7th grade American History then Johnny Tremain is a great addition.
