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.****
*****I am a huge fan of your novel bookmarks. I have purchased them for several different novels. My students have often remarked how helpful they have been, especially at the beginning of the novel when several characters are introduced.—Teaching My Friends*****
****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
****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 gave them to the students a couple of days before we started so they could get acquainted with the story. Thank you!****—Nancy M.
****I always love your bookmarks! My students do too!! They serve as AWESOME little reminders for the kids as they read.—Mellow V.****
