Kim in SouthGa Posted May 21, 2009 Share Posted May 21, 2009 My kids just love to read (the 2 oldest, anyway) and previous attempts at literature guides have not worked out because when they get into a book, they don't want to stop. I have just been making them write summaries for each "school" related book they read. These summaries have to include the title, author, genre, main characters, short description, and their opinion of the book. I know for my soon to be 8th grader, it is probably time to move to the next level. However, I don't want to dampen his enthusiasm by making him stop after every chapter to answer questions and discuss with me. What are your suggestions? I was thinking about Figuratively Speaking and just continuing on as we have been doing for this year, but I want to make sure he is prepared for The Great Books for 9th grade. Should I go with something like Lightening Lit? Would love to hear some advice! Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
