Five-Finger Test to Check Book's Reading Level
Help your child use this test to find the PERFECT BOOK to read!
- Open the book to the middle. Pick a full page of text.
- Read the page (aloud if possible).
- Put one finger up for every word you can not pronounce or do not know.
- If you get five ( 5 ) fingers up on one page, the book is too difficult to read independently.
- If you do not get any fingers up but are reading very slowly and decoding almost every word, you will not enjoy the book.
Students in Kindergarten and in third grade are required to complete an online course titled Digital Citizenship which is facilitated by the media specialist. The course focuses on computer etiquette and safety and addresses the use of all digital media.

Evergreen Elementary School Media Center would like everyone to remember:
- Information online is not private. Never tell anyone online your last name, your phone number, where you live, or where you go to school.
- Never e-mail a picture of yourself to a stranger.
- If you see something that makes you uncomfortable, don't look around or explore; get your parents or teacher instead.
- Never make plans to meet internet friends.
- Never open an e-mail, file, or web page from people you don't know.
- Never give out your password, except for responsible adults in your family or a teacher.
- Never visit sites that offer special prizes, contests, or games. These sites may be trying to get your personal information or get money from you.
- Always follow family and school rules for the Internet. Rules are there to make sure you stay safe.
