AR - Accelerated Reader Level and Goal Bookmarks
Our librarian was the inspiration for these bookmarks. She noticed that students forgot their levels and goals while at the library choosing new books.
These handy bookmarks travel easily to the library or computer lab.
I have a very honest class this year. So, when one student wrote his user name and password on the front I realized it might be a good idea for all of them. Two versions of each bookmark are included – with and without student information.
- 4 different colored bookmarks for easily changing quarters
- 4 bookmarks with student information space
- 3 levels for each color
- 3 levels of print-friendly bookmarks with and without student info
- Each bookmark has a different background pattern so they can be printed in gray-scale if desired instead of using the gray version.
10/28/15 - I added a higher level book mark and a low-ink gray-scale
8/10/16 - I added an even higher level book mark up to 9.4
8/14/16 - Edited one page with two levels on it. I created a Lexile Level Book Mark Goals
based on customer feedback. Thanks for the questions and suggestions!
9/22/16 - The highest level bookmark has been corrected - some numbers were missing.
1/24/17 - Added a lower version beginning at 0.1 to all 4 colors, and gray-scale versions.
Teaching Tip Update
Now that I've used these for 3 years I have a routine that works well. My book boxes are organized by half points (3.0-3.4; 3.5-4.0 etc.) so I realized one line on the bookmark is a level of books. The student and I discuss their current level and I circle
that number. Then we discuss which books levels they could read around that number and I put a line
around those. So a student with a 2.4 level circled might be able to read books from 2.0-2.9 boxes.
I have one or two students who need a higher level bookmark than the rest of the class. I simply print off a different sheet for them.
