It is very important for students to learn how to choose their own books. As I've mentioned in a previous post, the best way for kids to raise their reading level is to read MORE on a level that is fairly EASY for them. This would be their INDEPENDENT level. The Five Finger Rule or Five Finger Test, is one of the easiest ways for kids to determine if a book they've selected, will be a match. If you haven't heard of the Five Finger Rule, I'll let the sample graphics that I've collected from the Internet explain it for you!
