Here we are in library, Mrs Maurier is giving us a talk about "Just Right" books. When you read a book, a good way to tell if it is just right, count each word that you don't know on each page. If you get to five words, that book may be a food one to put back on the shelf.
The other important thing in finding just right books is that it should be fun. I hope you try lots of different titles and genres this year, but to grow as a reader you must find books that you like
We both know lots of great books, and so do our classmates. If you are having trouble finding a book that's just right, please let someone know.
Fifth graders can check out three books. Please put Monday night on your family calendar for packing books in your backpack. I'll be setting a reminder on my phone right after I publish this post.
