Does the shoe fit?

Selecting a book that is "just right" for young readers is not easy.  Using shoes gave us the perfect connection.  This week we used shoes to show how one book does not fit everyone.  In addition, your interests reflect the type of shoes you have in your closet.  When we choose a book there is so much to think about first!

When selecting a book we have learned to think about 4 items.  Each item is summarized in the I PICK poster.  

P stands for purpose, why do I want to read this book?  
I stands for interest, am I interested in the topic?
C stands for comprehend, do I understand what I'm reading?
K stands for know, do I know most or all the words?

We have this hanging in our room to serve as a reminder.

  1. Dear Mrs. Wiggs' are so smart! I think that there are many grownups that could use a lesson like this one. I like the question about purpose. We read for so many different reasons! Stay smart!
