Finding books for your child that are both high interest and the correct readability is extremely important. You can use the "five finger test" to determine if a book is too difficult for your child.

To execute the "five finger test," open the book to a page with many words. Have your child begin reading the text aloud. Hold up a finger for each word he/she does not know. If you have 4 or 5 fingers up, the text may be too difficult for your child to read independently.

PLEASE, feel free to check out the book!
It may just be a book you will want to read to, or with, your child.

Be sure your child reads at least 20 minutes a day. According to research, a child who reads only 1 minute a day outside of school will learn 8,000 words by the end of 6th grade, where a student who reads 20 minutes outside of school will learn 1,800,000 words! If reading isn’t one of your child’s top priorities, you may need to set up an incentive program.
Here are some favorites from our current Breckenridge Elementary Students.
Happy Reading!
