Here is a recommended reading list for you. We found some excellent biographies, classic books and short stories that are ideal for a middle school student. They may just spark a love of great literature! Why provide your student with supplemental reading? The reasons are numerous!
Read to Reduce Stress! Since 8th graders find themselves on the cusp of so much change, the 8th-grade year can often be a time of tremendous stress. Reading has been shown to actually decrease stress!
Our selection of books for 8th graders is designed with students emotional needs in mind as well as their academic needs.
Think of books as stress relievers. They give the mind a very specific place to go, and readers can immerse themselves in the flow of a fictional story or nonfictional narrative.
Read to Expand Vocabulary! By 8th grade, students have hopefully built up a very usable level of vocabulary. For 8th-grade level reading literature, special care is taken to ensure that students are continuing to elevate their vocabulary and increase their understanding of myriad words and concepts.
This has some effects that go well beyond students choosing a more elevated language for their writing. People who are more articulate and are often regarded as more intelligent. Studies have shown that people who use a wider variety of language are more likely to receive promotions during their careers than people who have a limited vocabulary.
Read to Increase Knowledge! In 8th Grade, we like to give our students a selection of informational books.
Read to Stimulate the Mind! Reading has been shown to stimulate the mind in ways that watching TV and playing video games simply does not.
We suggest a broad array of topics for 8th-grade reading because many students are still discovering what areas of interest fascinate them the most. Read to Improve Memory! Because fiction and nonfiction are both inherently complex things that involve multiple plot lines and details that must be kept in mind for quick recall, reading a book serves as an excellent gymnasium for strengthening the mind.
People who use memory and recall more frequently have a stronger capacity for recall in all aspects of their life.
