Testimonials for Bookmarks Plus from Teachers of All Levels!
*****My students LOVE these bookmarks. I have one for each of the 11 pieces of literature they read with me during the year. Not only does it keep their place, the bookmarks provide valuable information about each text, as well as helpful vocabulary that could be incorporated into assessments. I actually copy limited numbers of each in color and use as class incentives. My 10th graders LOVE to win contests to upgrade their bookmarks to color (way better than candy as a prize too). I cannot say enough positive things about these bookmarks!—Matthew R.*****
*****To say that my students loved these would be an understatement. They referred to them all the time, got really upset if their bookmark got misplaced, and said they were "the best thing you've ever given us..." (they are prone to slight exaggeration...but they were appreciative!)...Highly recommend!***** H.S. Language Arts Teacher
*****My students love these! They feel much more confident discussing the book with this handy guide at their side.***** Eager Beavers
*****These were fun! I teach seniors and gave them 5 minutes to study the front & back of their bookmarks as table teams - then I asked them to SIT on their bookmarks (no cheating, lol) & we had a table vs. table quiz-type competition for small rewards. It was a fun way to introduce some of the names and terms associated with our study of Beowulf.—Stephanie N.*****
*****I purchased these bookmarks for 4 novels after downloading the Holes freebie bookmark. They are wonderful! The students refer to them frequently while reading. Struggling readers feel empowered and participate in text discussion much more often. Definitely worth the price!—Portigo P.*****
*****I have bought several of these resources, and I love seeing my students refer back to them when they have a question about a character. They are a hit!—Tara S.*****
*****I always love your bookmarks! My students do too!! They serve as AWESOME little reminders for the kids as they read.—Mellow V.*****
*****I can't wait to use these! I started buying your bookmarks when I came to 3rd grade last year. I notice a lot of titles I would also use if I make it back to 5th grade. You have a great variety of titles. My students love using these bookmarks!—Rhonda A.*****
*****I gave them to the students a couple of days before we started so they could get acquainted with the story. Thank you!***** Nancy M.
