Reading Recovery: Choosing a 'Just Right' Book

  • Choosing a "Just Right"


    * Open the book to the middle and choose any page to read.

    * Have your child read the page (aloud if possible).

    * Put 1 finger up for each word your child does not know, or cannot pronounce. 

                1 finger= This book is O.K. for you.
                2 fingers=  Still good
                3 fingers= Could be a bit hard for you to understand
                4 fingers= Will be too difficult to read and understand
                5 fingers= Choose another book
