Do you scour Pinterest for book list pins?
I have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to book lists. I LOVE book lists.
I’ve created quite a few book lists over the past few years – from books that enhance our history or science studies to lists of fun and funny books to read aloud.
I also create a book list for each grade level so I never run short on ideas for great reads each school year.
However, I found that I wasn’t being intentional when creating these book lists. Some years the books were all in the fantasy genre while other years my list was full of historical fiction. And biographies?? Oh my! We rarely read books in that genre.
So I designed a plan to help me have better variety in our book lists. You can download your copy right here!
I created a book list planning worksheet to help me choose a better variety of books from several different categories.
- Picture books
- Biographies and Autobiographies
- Non fiction
- Historical fiction
- Modern fiction
- Cultural focus
I used my worksheet to help plan our reading list for 6th grade and I’m excited about all the wonderful books that are waiting to be read this upcoming school year. However, I’m still a little bit in shock that my oldest child is about to start middle school!
If you need some reading inspiration, check out the list below. And don’t forget to download the book list planning worksheet so you can intentionally choose your next read alouds.
