The Joy of a Good Book in IEP

In IEP, we visit the library every week and undertake many different literacy-based activities. Today, we focused on the five finger rule for picking a book.

  1. Choose a book that you think you will enjoy.
  2. Read the second page.
  3. Hold up a finger for each word you are not sure of, or do not know.
  4. If there are five or more words you did not know, you should choose an easier book!

 

Students moved around the library, observing, investigating and identifying what books might be a good fit for them and their current reading level.
This is a valuable skill for students to learn as reading a book that is too difficult can negatively impact on their confidence and take away from the enjoyment that is reading a really good book!
