Are your students stuck on what they can jot about while reading their just right books? Print these bookmarks on brightly colored card stock and your students can use them as bookmarks!
These bookmarks include ideas that the students can record their thinking about, whether it be on Post-it notes or in their reader's notebook. The ideas on the bookmark will accompany your character unit including predictions, envisioning, inferring, ideas about characters (traits, motives, character change), problem/solution, theme, etc. It also includes sentence starters for reminding the students to use EVIDENCE from the text to support their thinking. The mini-lesson strategies on the bookmark are general enough to use with any book and will be a great addition to your Reading Workshop.
You can download this in Microsoft Word so that you can make changes if need be depending on your reading workshop needs.
