I created this product to accomplish two goals. First, my students kept asking to have sticky notes as bookmarks. Obviously, these aren’t very durable and need to be replaced frequently. Second, I wanted to encourage my students to use our reading comprehension strategies. So, I created these bookmarks for my students to have as a placeholder in their books and as a reminder to use their reading strategies. I print these bookmarks on white card stock to make them more durable. You could also laminate them, if you wish.
Included in this product are three bookmarks per page, each with a different reading graphic and a list of thinking stems for the following reading strategies:
• Activating schema (prior knowledge)
• Asking questions
• Determining importance
• Synthesizing information
If you purchase this product, your feedback would be greatly appreciated.
