These bookmarks are great to use during small reading groups, independent reading time or to send home as a reminder of word strategies while students are reading with their family members. They remind beginning readers of decoding strategies. Each strategy is paired with an animal to make it fun and memorable. For example: Chunky Monkey...Chunk It! (Look for chunks you know). On the back Bookwork Friends are reminding children of the 3 important questions readers should constantly ask themselves...Does it LOOK right? Does it SOUND right? Does it MAKE SENSE? There is even a spot for a name.
Simply Print back to back on cardstock and cut.
