These "Teacher's Creatures" bookmarks keep decoding strategies right at your students' fingertips. They provide visual reinforcement of strategies by correlating each strategy with an appealing animal. They provide support for beginning readers, ELL, and Learning Support students. The bookmarks can be laminated. During reading conferences, the student's reading goal or target strategy can be circled with permanent marker (and removed with hairspray, rubbing alcohol, or hand sanitizer) when used to support differentiated instruction.
