Five Finger Rule

Five Finger Rule

One way we teach children to find a book that is 'just right' for them is the Five Finger Rule.  Here is how it works:

  • Choose a book that interests you, and read the first page or two.
  • Put one finger up for every word you don't know.
  • If five of your fingers go up while reading, choose another book.
  • If only two or three fingers go up, you've found a 'just right' book.
  • If no fingers or only one finger go up, this book is too easy for you.
