Finding the “Just Right” Book
five finger test

Have your child read a page from a book.  When they come across a difficult word, they should fold down a finger.  If your child encounters five words that are difficult, the text is probably too difficult.  If the child encounters only one or no difficult words, the text is probably too easy.  A book with two or three difficult words on the page is generally just right.
