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:
A nerdy boy saves the frog and gets the girl! Most kids recognize Elizabeth Hurley from Saved by the Bell : )
Spooky story of real life witches that can turn kids into mice. Based on the book by Roald Dahl.
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!
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.
Adventure/mystery about a boy who is on a spy mission. Based on the book by Anthony Horowitz.
Great story about a group of kids fighting to save owls from losing their home. Based on the book by Carl Haaissen.
