Students need to learn to read strategically (after they have learned to decode, of course). Comprehension is enhanced when they can read using these strategies.
I created the colored strategies side of the bookmark with small pictures to accompany each strategy, in order to remind the students of each strategy in a visual way. So, the colored side is the front side of my bookmark. And the questions are the back of the bookmark. To create them, I take one copy of the picture side (after cutting the page 3 ways) and one copy of the question side, then glue the questions onto the back of the picture side. Also, for durability, I print the colored picture side on cardstock and the questions on regular paper and then I laminate each bookmark. So, these templates allow three bookmarks per paper. I distribute these to each student at the beginning of the year and refer to them each day during reading/language arts. I teach each strategy separately and by the 2nd month or so, students are using the strategies on their own, during class discussions and answering the discussion questions on the back. These questions can be applied to any story.
These bookmarks also offer opportunity for student accountability (by giving them something visual to refer to on their own) and allow students to feel ownership in their comprehension.
