The many editions of BOOKMARKS PLUS provide students with essential knowledge of the book: title, author info, publication date, genre, story premise, descriptions of main characters, themes/topics, and setting. Each edition also contains a "Words to Know" section, which students can refer to as they come across new words. Some even feature a list of words, along with their definitions, that are specific to the setting.


BOOKMARKS PLUS come 5 to a page, front to back, and they’re reproducible, so you can print as many as you like for as long as you like with only a minimal initial investment! Also, I’ve included both a color version and a black and white version to meet all your printing needs.


FYI: The 25 "Words to Know" vocabulary words on the bookmarks are the same words included in my THE HOUSE OF DIES DREAR Synonym/Antonym Crossword. Students solve the puzzle by providing either a synonym or antonym for each of the 25 words.


*******Praise from teachers of all levels for Bookmarks Plus!*******

***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! Students refer to them often.—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.***

***Excellent idea, especially since it is sometimes difficult to keep all the characters straight while reading.—Elizabeth U.***

***I always love your bookmarks! My students do too!! They serve as AWESOME little reminders for the kids as the 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.***
