    FIVE FINGER RULE!  

    1. Choose a book and read the first few pages (5 or 6).

     

    2. Put one finger up for every word you do not know, have trouble pronouncing, or do not understand the meaning.

     

    3. If five or more of your fingers go up while reading, choose another book.

     

    4. If only two or three fingers go up, you have found a “just right” book.

     

    5. If no finger goes up, or only 1, pick a different book because that one is too easy!

     

    Happy Reading!
