As part of our Year three tamariki learning to read for a sustained period of time - 'Read to Self', we will be teaching them this week to be able to choose a good fit book.
We will compare choosing a good fit book to choosing the right shoes to wear. I own a pair of nice warm slippers, but I wouldn't wear them in the snow.
Choosing the right fit book should feel right, like a good pair of shoes designed for the task you are completing.
These visuals will help you encourage your tamariki to choose good fit books at home, online, and at the library:
