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)
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!
