Product Description
Building students’ vocabulary is very important. Not only does learning new words help students become better readers, but it also aids in helping them better comprehend what they are reading – regardless the subject!

My “What’s the Word” bookmarks are a reading strategy that I use in my classroom, to build my students’ vocabulary.

Included in this product:
How to Use Guide
6 colored reading quotes/front side bookmarks
6 black & white reading quotes/front side bookmarks
2 black & white lines to write on/back side bookmarks
1 “What’s the Word” worksheet – front & back

How I use this product in my classroom:
Each bookmark comes with a fun reading quote on the front, and lines to write ten unfamiliar words on the back. I make copies of the bookmarks, being sure to copy a front side as well as the back side – to make front and back, for each of my students. In my classroom I make black and white copies, and allow my students to color their bookmarks. However, there are also color options included.

I use a new bookmark at the start of a new reading story, or at the start of a new chapter. I have used these bookmarks to help reinforce students’ weekly vocabulary lists. I have also used these bookmarks to help expand the students’ vocabulary by having them write down unfamiliar words that are not on their vocabulary lists.
At the end of the story or chapter, students complete the “What’s the Word” worksheet to find the meaning of each word they didn’t know.
