Being an independent reader means knowing if a book is ‘just right’ for you . . . but how do you know? Here are some ideas to use when teaching the children how to select a book that ‘fits’.
‘The Daily 5‘ by Gail Boushey and Joan Moser is packed full of fantastic structural techniques to support your literacy programmes.
The I PICK strategy is used to teach learners how to select a text that is a ‘good-fit’ for them.
A PowerPoint template on how to introduce this strategy can be found below.
The BOOKMATCH strategy is another process that can be used to teach learners in the upper primary/ secondary how to select a ‘good-fit’ text.
