5 Finger Rule

Clip to ScrapBook #2

I teach my kids the 5 finger rule for choosing books. We discuss abandoning books and we usually decide as a class that they need to read at least the first 50 pages before they abandon the book.
I think you'll be surprised by 5th graders. My kids still love the babyish things. They're at the age were they want to be big kids but don't want to give up being the little kids either!
