Let's be like Goldilocks…

  • Finding a book can sometimes feel the same way.  

  • We have to be just like Goldilocks and find our “just right” book.

  • A book that is not too hard or too easy.


Too easy

Too easy?

  • …read it many times?

  • …know almost all the words?

  • …know what the words mean?

  • …sound smooth … fluent?

  • If your answer is “yes” to all these questions, then this book is too easy.


Too hard

Too hard?

  • …lots of words you don’t know?

  • …confused?

  • …sound choppy and slow?

  • If your answer is “yes” to all these questions, then this book is too hard.


Ahh just right

Ahh… Just right!

  • …understand the book?

  • …only a few words you don’t know or understand?

  • This book is just right!

    Now, let’s practice the 5 Finger Rule!
