How to Find a Just Right book
Finding a Book that is…..
AAAAHHHHH, Just Right!
The children know about using the "5 Finger Test" to find a book that is just right for them to read. If you would like to help your child at home, here is how the "5 Finger Test" works.....
1. Find a book that looks interesting to you.
2. Open to any page and start to read the text.
3. When you come to a word that you don't know,
