Are you looking for a positive way to start your first week of school? Not only will these bookmarks help students set intentions for the year, but they will also keep them busy while you are scurrying to manage everything that happens on the first days of school.

NOTE: These bookmarks for setting intentions state the exact SAME intentions as these Bookmarks for Setting Intentions BUT they say, "This year..." on each bookmark to specify goals for the beginning of a new school year or the beginning of a new calendar year (New Years). If you want to be able to use them for weekly or monthly goals, please grab the other set!

You will find 48 unique bookmarks (12 pages of 4 bookmarks each). There is a SECOND SET of bookmarks with zoomed in backgrounds that are not quite as intricate for students who are still working on fine motor skills or who don't have access to fine tipped markers or colored pencils. These back-to-school bookmarks can be used for any grade level.

I recommend printing these bookmarks on card stock and asking students to choose a bookmark (or two) that resonates with their goals or desires. After students finish coloring their bookmarks (with their names on the back), it would be beneficial to laminate them.

Thank you for taking the time to check out these zen doodle back-to-school bookmarks. Please direct questions to me PRIOR to purchasing this product.
