Ten High Interest Novels for Middle School and First Chapter Friday

Uncategorized Jun 26, 2020


First Chapter Fridays are designed to introduce students to novels that peak their interest and motivate them to read!  Generally, there are no strings attached (or grades) to First Chapter Fridays…just high-interest books that you think kids will love!

When it’s time for FCF in my classroom, students are able to grab comfy chairs and pillows so they can relax and listen to the book I’ve chosen to share.  I choose books that I know they will like, not necessarily “educational”.  This also cues them for 30 minutes of “just reading”.  No activities, no assessments, no interruptions from me…just reading for fun.  The list of novels below can get you started on FCF in your own classroom!
