Just Right Reading

Choosing a Just Right Book  For Your Child!

                   

 Here is a great website for book recommendations based on your child's reading level! Please keep in mind that certain book companies leveling systems may not always match perfectly to what we use at school. But this site is a good baseline to work from!

ALSO, a good way to "test out" a book to see if your child won't get too frustrated with his/her reading is called the "5 Finger Rule Book Test". See the poster below how to do the test and figure out which books are just right for your child to read.

Also you can download these bookmarks to help your child with reading the words for accuracy (decoding bookmark) and retelling the story (retelling bookmark).
