This is an easy effective way to teach close reading skills to your students. This can be used in your guided reading groups or as a whole class. Print these bookmarks back-to-back and laminate for ease of use. Bookmarks include symbols to help students annotate text. Also, included are sentence starters to help students cite evidence within the text and step-by-step directions to find evidence to answer questions.
This is also perfect for test prep. There are larger posters of the bookmarks so students can use them as every day visual resources.
