School Cancelled for Corona Virus? Keep Learning and Reading with these Books...

Parents, looking to keep your students reading and learning while on Corona Virus hiatus from school? Check out these reading and learning resources!

· Teachers

I usually post these lists of fantastic teaching books in June, July and August, for teachers to plan what to teach for their next school year.

But parents, you can use them too, to order books and keep your middle school students reading and learning through any extended school shut downs.

Now's a great time, when they may not have enough structured activities to keep them occupied for a 6-hour day, to get your student reading independently. Each post includes book recommendations and links to free, publisher-generated educator's and teaching guides for each book, so you can assess your students' reading progress.
