Product Description
When I read, I don’t like to interrupt the flow to look up a word I don’t know. Neither do kids. Neither does anyone else at Morris Tutoring Productions. Unless understanding the word immediately is crucial to comprehension, I pencil it and the page number on the title page or anywhere there’s a blank space. When I’m done reading a chapter, I look up the words online, go back to the pages on which they were used, and re-read the passages with my new-found knowledge. By doing so, I find that either 1) my use of context clues had led me to correctly intuit the meaning of the word, OR 2) that I was wildly wrong. Either way, I remember the word and its meaning far better than I would have if I had followed my teachers’ advice to STOP AND LOOK IT UP. As a tutor, I can appear to be far more reasonable than my teachers were by suggesting my approach. This bookmark is a place where kids can write unknown words with page numbers as they read a chapter, then look them up and re-read in context. PRINT ON CARD STOCK - 3 per page
