Teacher Resources

If you are a teacher of 8-12 year olds and are looking for the best books for kids, this page is for you! It can be difficult to find books for the wide variety of readers in your classroom, but I want to make that easier for you. If you are looking for personalized suggestions, feel free to email me at MGLitList @ gmail . com and I’d be happy to make personalized recommendations!

Newsletters for Teachers

There is a lot of material that needs to be covered in a school year. And sometimes there just doesn’t seem to be enough time. This is when it can be wildly helpful to use books across the content areas. But how do you figure out which books can be used with which standards?!? I send out a monthly newsletter with ideas for using middle grade books across content areas.

Additionally, as a teacher it can be difficult to stay up-to-date with new book releases to share with your students. I read a lot and so I would love to help you out! I have a monthly newsletter where I share books for 8-12 year-old readers. The newsletter is designed to help you find the next right book for your students.

YouTube Channel

If you don’t want to wait to get the newsletter each month, I’d recommend checking out my YouTube channel. Designed to help parents and teachers find the next right book for their 8-12 year old, the channel is filled with suggestions for your reader.

Science Book Recommendations

My current school uses Mystery Science as our science curriculum. I am incredibly passionate about reading so I have researched book pairings for the science units.
