Teaching Students How To Choose A Just-Right Book

To foster reading independence, students need to be exposed to various reading strategies and tools to boost their confidence. This includes teaching students how to utilize the classroom library and make book choices based on purpose, interest, and reading! As you kick of your Reading Workshops this school year, start by teaching them how to choose a just-right book. This simple reading strategy will encourage and empower students to read independently! Plus, download my awesome (and free) Walk Into a Just-Right Book Lesson Plan.

Choosing a Just-Right Book Lesson Plan

The choosing a just-right book reading strategy will help students understand how the process of selecting a book to read is unique to each of them. To help students learn how to choose a just-right book, I created a lesson plan that compares selecting a book to finding the right pair of shoes. This simple and silly comparison will really help elementary students feel confident in their ability to select a book.

With the Walk Into a Just-Right Book Lesson Plan, students will learn how to make book choices based on purpose, interest, and reading level. This lesson download includes:

  • Teacher Guide

  • "Just-Right" Book Poster

  • "Just-Right" Book Student Bookmarks
