Help your students help themselves!
We know that we can not always be by our students' sides when they are reading, so we must teach them how to self-monitor and know when understanding/comprehension has broken down.
Print these bookmarks, attach one bookmark on the front and one on the back of a piece of cardstock or construction paper, and laminate for durability. Encourage your students to follow the before, during, and after reading steps to increase their comprehension and ability to make meaning of what they are reading!
