Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Let's find a good book! - Section 4: The Students' Take a Turn


The kids really liked using this website.  The only frustrating part, and this is one of the challenges to using a website, was that the kids did not have immediate access to the books.  They liked the technology of this website, however.

I was surprised to see them use the '5 finger rule' right off the bat.  Even my lowest readers were honest with themselves and used this rule fairly accurately.  I'll need to give them more practice with this. 

I would suggest giving the kids a ‘My Wish List’ of books that they found online that they liked.  Perhaps is they write down the title and author, they would be able to find them in the school or local library.
