Five Finger Rule

 The Five Finger Rule

If you are not sure if a book is "just right" or not, use the Five Finger Rule to help you decide.

  1. Open to a page of the book.
  2. Begin reading.
  3. Each time you come to a word you don’t know, hold up 1 finger.
  4. After you finish reading the page, check to see how many fingers you are holding up.

Too Easy: 0 - 1 fingers

Just Right: 2 - 3 fingers

Too Hard: 4 - 5 fingers
