Product Description
This document includes 19 different bookmarks to provide students with book recommendations based on their reading level. When I made the switch from teaching elementary school to middle, I found myself with four times the students and a quarter of the time with them than I was used to. Instead of individually counseling students on independent reading books, I took the students' lexile levels, the general range they should be reading in, and matched them with books in our classroom library. I then gave copies of the bookmark to students so they could have a guide when book shopping. Kids liked them so much that when they moved up levels throughout the year, they requested new book marks. I ended up liking this method better for 6th graders then individual conferences because it allowed them a level of independence better suited to middle schoolers.

Each bookmark covers a lexile range of 150 points, and I matched students on the basic principal that they could read 50 points below, and 100 points above the level they scored on our assessment. My class was extremely diverse, and students' levels ranged from Kindergarten to College, so the bookmarks included in this product reflect that. The lowest of the 19 bookmarks recommends books in the 50-200 level range. The highest of the bookmarks recommends books in the 1210-1360 range. There is, of course, everything in between. You can also buy separate sheets for each level of bookmark, if you prefer.
