This document includes 48 sets of vocabulary lists created for middle school students. Each of the 48 lists contains 10 (or more) vocabulary words chosen from novels frequently read by students from grades 6 to grade 8. A clear, accurate, and comprehensive definition is given for each of the 480+ vocabulary words within this packet. The part of speech of each word is provided. Along with each vocabulary list is a link to an online set of flashcards through Quizlet. On this website, students are able to study the flashcard sets as well as play vocabulary games and take practice quizzes. The vocabulary lists were created to accompany novels read by my middle school students. However, these novels do not need to be read by students in order for these vocabulary lists to be used as a learning tool within their classroom.
The novels from which these vocabulary words were taken are:
Grade 6: Tuck Everlasting, The Giver, The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, and Fever 1793
Grade 7: Tangled Threads, Touching Spirit Bear, The Outsiders, and The Pearl
Grade 8: Of Mice and Men, Monster, To Kill a Mockingbird, and A Doll’s House
