Just Right Books
A book is too easy if...
you know all of the words.
you know the book by heart.
it is an old favorite.
you can read the pages without looking at the words.
A book is too challenging if...
you stumble over 5 or more words on a page.
you do not understand what's happening in the story.
you have to ask a friend to read it to you.
you feel frustrated and are not having much fun.
A book is just right if...
you slow down a few times.
you know most of the words.
the book is not too easy and not too hard.
you can tell someone what's happening in the story.
you're having fun!
