N/Warren Town and County News OVIATT ELEMENTARY By Rodney Martinez, Dean of Students Choosing Books at the Right Reading Level "Just-right books" make reading more fun and less frustrating. Question: How can ! help my daughter choose books that are at her reading level? Answer: "Just-right books" make reading more fun and less frustrating. Have your child try the "five-fin- ger test" to select a book. 1. Choose a book you would like to read. 2. Look at a page in the middle. 3. Put one finger down for every word you can't read or don't understand. If you have five fingers down, the book may be too hard. 4. If you have fewer than five fingers down, the book is "just right!" Read it. Your child may want to read a book that is "too hard" based on this test. That's okay. Just make it a book that you read aloud to her, or that you read together (per- haps alternating pages or chapters; or she reads, but you sit alongside to answer questions or help her with chal- lenging words). l To service our customers even better, we have a Brand New State-of-the-Art HUNTER ALIGNMENT SYSTEM All work is guaranteed by a 12 months/12,000 Miles Warranty 981-0649 802 Sunset Drive Norwalk NAPA Auto Center Auto Repair Towing Complete Engine Specialist In,take Spedalist ASE C, erfilied Mechanics I I SPORTS PHYSICAI00 Family Medicine at Norwalk will be offering special dates and times for sports physicals.

We will need to determine if we need to adjust the amount of money re- turned to outside organi- zations for using our con- cessions.
