Books for 7th Graders
Books for 7th Graders to Read
I started this 7th grade reading list in 2009 when my oldest daughter was 12 years old. My second daughter was in the 7th grade during the 2010-2011 school year, and I currently don't have any kids in this age group for the 2011-2012 school year.
I am keeping this 7th grade reading list so that I can remember what books to suggest to my younger daughter and son. There are many books that have come out since I started this list, so please let me know in the guestbook if there is one you think I should add to the list. I hope you find something on the list for your kids. And please feel free to suggest more books for seventh graders.
Seventh Grade Reading Skills and Strategies - Skills and Strategies for 7th graders
School districts in my area are top notch. I am always on the lookout for some of the best strategies seventh graders can utilize while reading.
- Preview reading materials, make predictions and create a visual representation such as a graphic organizer or a drawing about what has been read.
- Use information from the text and the 7th grade student's own ideas to explain and support understanding of various kinds of fiction and nonfiction texts.
- Make sure they like it more than they hate it
- Choose closed caption on the TV and the kids will read as they watch
- Vary the length and subject matter of your readings, both fiction and non-fiction.
- Never read above a child's emotional level

My eldest daughter's favorite book in 7th grade - Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
My eldest daughter really enjoyed the Twilight books which she read while she was in 7th grade in 2008. It was a book I had to keep telling her to put down and go to bed. Twilight is about a family of vampires who have integrated into our society.

Books to Read over the Summer after seventh grade
My daughter as part of her middle school curriculum is required to read five books over the summer and do book reports on them. If she turns the five book reports in during the first week she gets a free book report during the following year. Below are the five books she checked out of the school library for this summer.
