Reading Lists: Books for 9 to 12-year-olds
We all understand the value of books, and there has never been a better time to get reading. Having your child at home is a perfect opportunity to help them develop a love of reading and to recognise it is a pleasure, not a chore!
Mentor Education have put together the following reading lists of books for 9 to 12 year olds, using a variety of literary resources, book reviews, exam content, 11 plus reading lists and of course our favourites. Don’t forget, you can ask your tutor for recommendations too!
There is something for everyone – get reading!
Top tips for the reluctant reader…
Be a role model – exhibit a love of reading yourself. Schedule a time for the family to read every day eg. fiction, newspapers, cook-books, magazines, biographies.
Create a designated calm and cosy reading space.
Choose books together – mindful of your child’s reading ability and their interests.
Reading together is a special time and will not only improve your child’s fluency and understanding, but will create interesting discussions.
Encourage your reluctant reader to read to younger siblings.
Keep a reading log – this can be a great motivator
Create a reward scheme.
Help them to set-up an on-line book/comic/recipe club with friends.
