This cell phone bookmarks are great for all ages! The annotation marks are best used with fiction.
Students struggle with annotating the text-knowing what to highlight, circle, or underline- during close reading, but the text message language makes annotating easy. The annotation codes encourage students to incorporate the code language they already know while they practice close reading (CCSS RL 1/ CCSS RI 1).
The bookmarks can be used too as:
- Anchor charts
- Literacy stations
- Interactive notebooks
