20 Free Literature Guides for Upper Elementary & Middle School
Literature is my favorite subject to teach as a homeschool mom. It was also my favorite subject in school when I was a kid. I’ve always loved to read and write!
So with homeschooling, literature is a subject in which I haven’t really followed a curriculum. Sometimes I assign books and write my own questions and come up with my own activities. Other times I assign reports or have my kids keep up with chapter summaries, etc. Some books are just for pleasure and some books we read aloud. I also find free stuff online or purchase guides here and there. I can’t possibly keep up with every single book my kids read!
As my kids get older, I find I’m relying on purchased guides or free stuff I find online. In fact, I will be planning for the next school year very soon. I only have a middle schooler and a high schooler left – my oldest is going off to college in the fall!
Anyway, I thought I’d take a moment to share 20 Free Literature Guides for Upper Elementary & Middle School. All of the following books are listed in alphabetical order and have been read by at least one member of the family. The guides/questions I’ve written for my kids have stars on the left. The guides I found and used online have stars on the right. We’ve read the other books but haven’t actually used the guides that I’ve linked to.
