The Five Finger Rule and Why it is Bad for Boys. - Brain Power Boy The Five Finger Rule is Harmful to Boys’ Reading. There I said it. I have read all of the reasons that people think it is so great but I think it is not only awful but also harmful. The “five finger rule” for just right books, also called “5 finger tips”, is all over the Internet, taught in schools, and has even invaded libraries. I was at a library recently and saw a poster on the end of the stacks with the 5 finger rule featured. We write a lot about boys learning because the whole goal of this site is to help you raise boys who love to learn. Be sure to see the 5 ways you can help your boys with reading at the end of this article. What the Five Finger Rule Is: The 5 finger rule is a taught method for choosing a “just right” book for independent reading.

9/11 anniversary: New York remembers twin towers attacks with minute's silence Bagpipes and drums played to open the ceremony, followed by brief comments by Mayor Michael Bloomberg. "Once again we meet to commemorate the day we have come to call 9/11. We have returned to this sacred site to join our hearts together, the names of those we loved and lost," Bloomberg said. "No other public tragedy has cut our city so deeply. Moments of silence were held at 8:46 a.m. and 9:03 a.m., the times hijacked jetliners hit the north and south towers of the World Trade Center. But the rallies planned in New York embroiled victims' family members in a feud over whether to play politics. The heated mosque debate — pitting advocates of religious freedom against critics who say putting an Islamic center so close to ground zero disrespects the dead — led Obama to remind Americans on Friday, "We are not at war against Islam." In his Saturday radio address, he alluded to the contentious atmosphere. "This is a time of difficulty for our country," he said.
