We have been practicing choosing Just Right Books for independent and partner reading.
Students use the acronym IPICK to choose these books.
I- I choose my books
P- Purpose: Why do I want to read it?
I- Interest: Am I interested in reading it?
C- Comprehend: Do I understand what I am reading? Can I talk about what I am reading?
K- Know the words: Can I read most of the words in the book and know what they mean by using the 5 finger rule?
Attached is a PowerPoint for choosing Just Right Books
Thank you for helping your child choose Just Right Books at home for independent reading. :)
