What educators are saying

My students loved using this resource instead of writing in their workbooks. They are keeping their notes together in one place and have them all to refer to for their writing.
So simple to use and it was a great way to do a quick spot check of the students' reading and questions while reading.

Want to scaffold students into doing more critical thinking DURING reading? Want them to take notes without ruining the joy of the book? Want to annotate, but can’t mark in a class set of novels?

Or, just as importantly: do your students have trouble meeting their reading deadlines, either for class novels or independent reading?

Use these bookmarks to help students actively read, pace themselves, and take notes on a text!
• Pick and choose from a collection of 8 premade bookmark styles (or use the editable blank template to make your own), which address pacing/finishing books, vocab, quote analysis, lit devices, building arguments, reactions and connections to the text, and more!
• Staple all completed bookmarks to one of three activity sheets with clear rubrics for really easy grading.

After this, students will be ready to proceed to your next assessment or unit task, such as an essay, test, or project!

Though originally made with a class of mixed-ability middle schoolers in mind, these tools are great for ANY group of secondary ELA students who need help with active reading skills or noticing what is happening in the surface/deeper levels of text. (And since the docs are editable, you can customize the difficulty level of this assignment to the needs of your class!)
