Independent Reading! 

Students will be "real" reading this year.  All students will know their LEXILE range.  They will learn to use various resources to help make sure they are choosing a book that is "just right" for them. 

Some easy "just right" strategies:
    1) Five Finger Rule - Students should find no more than five and no less than one word on a page of their book that they do not know.  This will help ensure he/she is being exposed to new vocabulary. 
    2) One-Minute Rule - "Just Right" books should take approximately one minute to read one page (silently or out loud).
