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.
