Pick the Right Book

Do you have students reading chapter books that are too hard or too easy for them? Students can check to see if the book they are reading is "Just Right" for them. Use the Poster to help students pick out the 'Right Book' for independent reading time.

Students open the book to any page and read it. They put up a finger for every word they miss or cannot sound out. If no words are missed, the book is too easy and they should choose a harder book. If they miss more than 4 words on the page, the book is too hard and they should choose an easier book.

  1. We show our kids the "Five Finger" strategy for counting errors when they are picking a new book, but they aren't faithful about using it. I think this poster will help serve as a constant visual reminder to use the strategy. Thanks for sharing, Stacy @ http://new-in-room-202.blogspot.com.
