These are excellent additions to a lesson. We have included our Annotating Bookmark and Annotating Exit Ticket that we have used with a variety of lessons that require the students to annotate. The symbols help to guide the students with suggestions on what to focus on while being asking to "annotate". Our students often struggle to remember to circle unfamiliar vocabulary terms, identify the main idea, underline key details, ask a question or use a question mark when confused, identify positive or statements they agree with, identify negative or statements they disagree with, and make connections. The symbols we have provided will help them to remember what they should be looking for while they are annotating.
We utilized the exit ticket as a way to ensure they remember the symbols following the lesson when we introduced the symbols for the first time.
For the exit ticket we put 4 of them on one page to conserve paper when you go to make copies for your classes/groups. For the bookmark, we put 4 to a page as well to conserve paper.
Hope you enjoy this freebie!
