Just before the Thanksgiving break, I had parent-teacher conferences. The question I was asked over and over again was, “When we go to the library, how do I know what book my daughter/son should pick out?” Many of them mentioned that their children are eager to read chapter books, but that they are worried they aren’t comprehending the text.
I suggested that they tell their children to use the five finger rule.
I’m sure many of you’ve heard of this before. I made these little posters for my students to take home and hang on their refrigerators. You can grab them below in black and white and color. Enjoy!
