Use a shelfmarker when making your selections. Remember: Reference books can only be used in the library. They cannot be checked out! If you have any problems with selecting a book, please check with Mrs. S.

Choose books using the 5 fingered rule:  
Select a page and read it .
 Find the word (s) with definitions that are unknown to you.
 Read for more unknown words on another page.
 If you find more than 5 words the book is too hard for you.
GOOD luck! (Any problems see Mrs. S )
 Complete work listed on the board or given verbally to you.
