These bookmarks are based on the signposts outlined in the book Notice & Note: Strategies for Close Reading by Kylene Beers and Robert Probst.
The bookmarks include the signpost, definition, questions to ask, and an abbreviation symbol they can use to mark the signpost while reading fiction. This is a versatile resource that can be used with both lower and upper grades.
Printing these on brightly colored paper or cardstock and laminating them will ensure they last all year. Students can easily reference the signposts in order to perform a close read of the text, and they will also not lose their place!
This is a PDF version with 3 bookmarks per page. Included is a black and white version as well as a color version depending on your needs.
