Have you ever had students that seem to choose a book that is never just right for them? No doubt, every year Pattie and Paul Put-It-Back enter classrooms all around the world. They seem to find it very difficult to choose an appropriate text that will motivate and engage them from cover to cover. Choosing A “Just Right “ Book has helped my students choose that perfect text.
This concept card breaks down choosing the perfect book into three essential statements.
1. The text must be interesting to you!
2. The text must be organized in a way that you feel comfortable
3. You can easily read and understand the text that you have chosen!
After each statement, there are a set of questions that help students break down and think through the prior three statements.
Choosing A “Just Right Book” makes it as easy as one, two, three!
I have blown this up into poster size inexpensively at Walmart and use it to introduce the concept and reinforce as the need arises.
Choosing a “Just Right” Book has been teacher tested and child approved and therefore receive the KT’s Seal of Approval.
