These bookmarks were first created out of a need to have more time in the day to meet with all my guided reading groups. Well there simply wasn't going to be more time in the day. I decided that in order to make sure that my newcomer students (EL Learners) were having as much exposure as possible to reading and phonics, that I would work with my high students to train them to be mentor readers. This meant that during our guided reading time, they would spend 10 minutes of their read to self time mentoring these lower level reading students. I created this format, which could be easily edited to fit your class and needs, to give the kids a clear structure to follow and to make sure that they wouldn't consume too much of their own reading time. This meant that my students could have this additional support on the days that I was not able to meet with them.
I printed and laminated these bookmarks so that they could be reused each time.
