The past couple of weeks we have been discussing "Just Right" books. First and second grade enjoyed listening to the book, Goldiesocks and the Three Libearians, by Jackie Mims Hopkins, as well as watching informative and entertaining videos on the subject. They also learned several strategies for choosing a "just right" book, such as the Five Finger Rule...
...and the I Pick strategy.
Students love the I Pick rap we did to help us remember what the acronym stands for and to reinforce the strategy.
We will be practicing these strategies in the media center and I encourage you to try using them at home as well. If you need more clarification, here's another "just right" video the students enjoyed that explains the Five Finger Rule in more detail.
