7th Grade Literature

James is entering 7th grade. His literature selections will be taken from the following titles:

  • Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls - he chose this to begin with
  • The Incredible Journey by Sheila Burnford
  • My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George
  • A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
  • 5 Children and It by E. Nesbit
  • The Black Stallion by Walter Farley
  • The Bronze Bow by  Elizabeth G. Speare
  • Across Five Aprils by Irene Hunt
  • The Story of King Arthur and His Knights by Howard Pyle
  • Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift
  • Adam of the Road by Elizabeth Janet Gray
  • Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne

I will let him choose from the list and decide what's next each time he finishes one. Not sure how many of these he'll get through, but I think one a month is a good goal.

We will be discussing the books with the Adam Andrews method. :-) Most of these are books I have read in the past, which makes the discussion easier if I can't read them along with him.

He will also be doing much writing to respond to these literature selections.
