how to choose a book poster

Howdy y'all -
I'm teaching 1st grade for the first time this year! I'm currently setting up my classroom library and realized that I need something that will help remind my students how to pick books they can read for independent reading. I'm looking for a friendly, simple to read poster/flyer that lists how to choose a book to read for independent reading time. I'm not really creative with things like this so I hope someone can help out there! thanks.

Just go to www.highsmith.com and search Five Finger Rule. At the least, it might give you some ideas on how to create your own. Hope this helps!

Daily 5

In the Daily 5 there is something called I Pick a Good Fit Book. Last year I tried D5 for the first time and I didn't spend enough time on this and some of the other concepts. I will this year. (Although it's always hard because I start to panic about the time it all takes. I know it is well worth the time, so this year I'm sticking by my guns.)

I do this as a mini lesson with my students. We create the poster together. I usually start by having the students talk about riding their bike. How does it feel to ride your bike up a steep bumpy hill? (too hard) What about riding down that hill? (too easy) How does it feel to ride your bike on a level street? Does it sometimes have bumps you have to ride over? (just right)

Then we relate that to reading. I found a clipart of a boy riding a bike and I draw the road on the paper. We write how it feels to read books that are too hard, too easy, and just right. Then they have the visual of the bike rider to remind them.

If you look at the picture I posted, you can see most of the poster we created this year in the left hand corner.

Used this lesson today from the Daily 5, on chart paper, I called it I Pick a JUST RIGHT BOOK. We discussed easy, just right and challenging books. Here is what our chart looked like:

I Pick a
JUST RIGHT BOOK

I look at the book
Purpose (who, why)
Interest
Comprehend (understand)
Know most of the words


We talked about:
(I) looking at the front & back covers and the pictures/words in the book
(P)who the student will read the book to (self, buddy, teacher, etc.) and why they willl read it (for fun, to learn something, etc.)
(I)having an interest in the topic
(C) understanding the main topic/story
(K) using the 5 finger rule to find a just right book.

All the children got a chance to pick a just right book and enjoy reading it!

I love the IPICK acronym for choosing a just right book. I am just starting RW this year with my fourth graders and I was looking for some ideas for helping my students choose books from my classroom library.
