These note-taking sheets are useful during literature circles/book clubs (small groups of students reading their own copies of the same text) with any book. Students can fold the Thinkmark page in half, and work on one side at a time. Once the reading and Thinkmark have been completed, students can share them during their book meeting. Each page is based on a Common Core ELA Standard.
There are 5 Thinkmarks included:
• Analyzing Illustrations - RL.3.7
• Character Traits -RL.3.3
• Power Words (significant words in the text) - RL.3.4
• Characters in a Series - RL.3.9
• Asking Questions - RL.3.1
