The Five Finger Rule
1. Choose a book that makes you want to read.
2. Use the 5 Finger Rule:
* Open to one page in the middle of the book and begin
*Hold up a finger for each word you can't figure out.
If 5 or more fingers are up, keep searching for a "good fit" book. If 4 or less fingers are up, it's a "good fit" book!
Finding books that are a good fit for your child will ensure that they don't become frustrated or loose interest in their reading. Happy book hunting!
