8th Grade Reading List

8th Grade Reading List

We have used visual reading lists in our homeschool for years now! I spend lots of time each summer creating these lists for my kids and they really help throughout the school year! Today I am sharing our 8th grade book list, for my son!

8th Grade Reading List

I used many sources to find books I thought he might enjoy and that I wanted him to try. I read many of these in the past few months because I wanted to have several on the list that I KNEW he would like since he is my non-reader. He will not choose to read, ever. These books will be assigned {not all} but he will have choices from those on this page. We may add to this list if I find new books throughout the year, but this is our starting point.

I create a page with each cover so he can browse and choose his next book easily. We do not own all of these so I have him choose and I put the book on hold at the library!

Downloads & How-To…

I have a few downloads you are welcome to use if you’d like. First, here is a PDF copy of the book choice page featuring the books I chose for him. If you want to create your own visual list, it is easy! I have a video tutorial here!

Here is a blank reading record like his. I just have him write the title, author and rate the book 1-10 based on his opinion.

Here’s another reading log we have used.  It is very similar to the one we are using now.
