Use these bookmarks as an inspiration for child-choice while writing. Other ways to use this activity is to turn these into posters and hang in the classroom. I like bookmarks laminated and placed on rings for kids to use. I begin the year this way and eventually they don’t need the bookmarks. Like anything, think in moderation. Let’s set the kids up for success… You will love the results!!!!!
Note: If you color code each bookmark page you can lead them to the color page/title easier…
INCLUDED ON THE BOOKMARKS:
Sentence Starters Transitional Phrases Sound Shots!
Suspense Exclamations Feelings/Emotions
Sensory- Feel, See, Hear, Smell, Taste, Characters
Signal Words Other Words for “Said” Similies
Extended Endings ** Samples of writing using bookmark
The following words have been adapted and collected over the years through workshops and reading. I call it Explorastory Writing…
I hope you will enjoy this activity and BE INSPIRED! And remember; allow your students to read, express, and share their writing with partners, small and large groups… BE CREATIVE!
