Welcome to the new school year!
These first weeks we are spending some time discussing the importance that reading plays in all of our lives…past, present, and future. It is imperative that students read daily, and to help students get going on this, I’ve compiled a list of books that the current 7th Graders have listed as their favorites: 7th Grade Favorites Fall 2012.
You can also find this, and other recommendations, at my “Book Recommendations for Students” link to the right. Included there are award nominated books. It’s a great place to start your search if you don’t have a book you’re currently excited about!
Happy Reading! I’m looking forward to hearing all about it!
