• Independent Reading:

    Students will be expected to read consistently throughout the year. Junior high students should average 20 minutes a night of independent reading. They will be encouraged to read a wide variety of genres this year, and to find the books that most spark their imagination and interest as readers. Please make sure to ask your children what they're reading throughout the year. 

    Check out some of my favorite books, as well as recommendations from other students:

    J.K. Rowling- Harry Potter series

    Rick Riordan- Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus,Kane Chronicles, and Magnus Chase series 

    Suzanne Collins- Gregor the Overlander series and The Hunger Games

    Cornelia Funke- The Thief Lord, Inkheart

    Ally Condie- Matched Trilogy

    Sharon Creech- Love that Dog, Heartbeat, Granny Torrelli Makes Soup
