- Sometimes we might feel like relaxing with a book and so we can choose a graphic novel or something easy.
- Sometimes we need to read something which is a little too difficult for us. We should use a dictionary and concentrate on the meaning.
- Usually though we want to find a book which is about right for us. To check the reading level you can use the Five Finger Test
Read a page in the middle of the book. Raise a finger for every word you don’t know.
|0 – 1 finger…easy|
|2 – 3 fingers…just right|
|4 – 5 fingers…hard|
