It seems like I am always teaching about finding "Just Right" books to every grade and this week it's first grade's turn.
I begin by reading Goldie Socks and the Three Libearians by Jackie Mims Hopkins.
I then go over the Five Finger Test and we also watch a short video on Brain Pop Jr. about choosing a book. If you have a subscription, you can watch the video by clicking here. I start the video at 2:22.
Finally, I let the kiddos color on a worksheet I made to help them remember what we talked about. You can get a copy of the worksheet here or by clicking on the picture above.
These "Good Fit Book" bookmarks would be fun to pass out, too. You can get them here or by clicking on the picture above.
How do you teach "Just Right" books?
