We know that re-reading text is a great strategy for our students to help improve word recognition, comprehension, fluency. But, how often do you hear your students say “I’m done!” and you know they have only read the book once.
This resource developed out of a real need with my struggling readers. I started to think about the reasons why they might re-read their book again (think closely about characters/setting, main idea/details, practice fluency, make connections, etc). By setting a purpose for each time they read a book, they can give themselves a self-check at the end.
There are two levels of bookmarks included Primary (reading levels A-E) and Intermediate (F-J). I have tried to include different versions that would encompass different vocabulary used in classrooms, as well as color and printer-friendly options.
Print the bookmark most appropriate for your students.
Trim to size, and fold. Laminate (if you wish).
Your students will need a paper clip or clothespin to move with each re-reading to set a new purpose.
