Five Finger Test Tips
 
 

1. When the child misses the first word, hold up your thumb, and say, “You know all but one word! I knew this book would be easy for you.”

2. After the second missed word, hold up your thumb and forefinger in an L shape, and say, “‘L’ stands for learning. This book will be a good learning book for you.”

3. After the third missed word, hold up three fingers and say, “‘W’ stands for ‘warning.’ This book may frustrate you, and you may not enjoy it.”

4-5. With the fourth or fifth missed word, represented by the same number of fingers, you can advise the child to stop and explain, “This means ‘stop.’ It’s time to find another book that you’ll be able to enjoy all by yourself.”
