I PICK good fit books.
Not too Easy! Not too hard!
Choose a book that is a "good fit," or just right for your reading level. If a book is too hard, you will not comprehend what you are reading and you will be frustrated. Choose a book that will exercise your brain to make you a better reader.
P: What is my purpose for reading this book? Why do I want to read this book? To enjoy a story; to learn about something; to do a book project; to get writing ideas.
I: Does it interest me? Do I like it?
C: Can I comprehend what I am reading? Do I understand it? Can I retell what just happened?
K: Do I know most of the words? Remember the 5-Finger Rule.
