Five Finger Rule for Book Selection

Teach your children the Five Finger Rule to help them pick a book at the right reading level. It’s super easy to use and remember.

1. Pick a book

2. Read the second page.

3. Hold up 1 finger for each word  you don’t know.

4. If there are more than five words, pick an easier book.

And remember parents, kids can comprehend at a higher level that they can read independently. So if the book is one that your child really wants to read, offer to do it together.
