There is a matching poster for each strategy to introduce whole group. All items are in black and white and also in color. Black and white copies makes it more ink-friendly and I like to copy it on colored card stock as a way to jazz it up.
I like to copy these double-sided on card stock for durability. I also like to mix and match different strategies on the double-sided sheets to get the most out of one bookmark. I also make two copies for each student, a copy for school and a copy for home. They have really helped my students become more independent during reading and better able to monitor their own comprehension and use of reading strategies. It is a great visual for those who need it. I use this mostly for my third and fourth graders but they can be altered to fit lower and higher grades.
Enjoy these bookmarks and posters however you choose and happy reading!
