movies and middle schoolers

Every once in a while you just have to have a movie day with your class. I like to show them older movies that they have never seen. Here is a list of my favorite movies to show to my middle school classes:

Frog:

A nerdy boy saves the frog and gets the girl! Most kids recognize Elizabeth Hurley from Saved by the Bell : )

The Witches:

Spooky story of real life witches that can turn kids into mice. Based on the book by Roald Dahl.

Lloyd:

Great movie about a geeky teenage boy just trying to fit in.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid:

Hilarious movie about what it is like in middle school. Whatever you do, don't touch the cheese!

The Sandlot:

Great movie about a group of kids who love baseball.

Chrissa Stands Tall:

Movie about a girl who is bullied. The bully is excellent and the kids all want to kill her by the end of the movie!

Akeela and the Bee:

Based on a true story of a girl who wins the spelling bee.

Stormbreaker:

Adventure/mystery about a boy who is on a spy mission. Based on the book by Anthony Horowitz.

Hoot:

Great story about a group of kids fighting to save owls from losing their home. Based on the book by Carl Haaissen.

What movies do you enjoy showing to your class?
