    Hi all - we are trying to plan Read Across America for middle schoolers. There are hundreds of ideas for the primary grades but we want to do something for grades 6-8. We are a K-8 school and have the idea about reading to the lower grades but we would like to include all middle schoolers.

    Any ideas would be appreciated. :confused:

    We switched classes the lower teachers read to the older kids and the older kids' teachers read to the younger kids. We also did a what is this teacher's favorite book challenge. Each teacher put up three clues about a book and their picture and the kids turned in their guesses and received small treats if they got it right!
