I was wondering how do you determine how many words a book has without sitting there and counting every single word. When you make a test it ask for how many words. Is there a formula or a site I can go to for the words in the book.
I use src.scholastic.com. You type the title in and it will list the number of words, point value, guided reading level and lexile. Hope that helps. If I can't find the book there I try Lexile.com.
If you can't find the word count at the aboven mentioned sites, I take an average page, count the words on 3 average lines, divide by 3, multiply by number of lines on the page, then multiply that by the # of pages in the book. You can adjust up or down slightly to account for the beginning of chapters where only 1/2 of the page is printed, etc. It's not perfect, but a valid ball-park total. Debbie
Some online book stores have word counts.
